isoredirect was meant to be used interactively, not through scripting.
So it's working as initially designed.
Some people wanted to add just quick fast redirect for some user-agents, and that was added.

As said, http://isoredirect.centos.org was initially designed to be used interactively and it works like that.
Asking for feedback for what's broken in current design.
IF you want RFE, consider tagging as such, and also open PR on upstream code for it ?
