It may or may not work, but my bet is that it will. I think most bots would note the redirection URL and follow it, but some stupid ones might not. However, the HTML itself contains a "proper" link to the honeypot-page and if the bots miss that, too, they're really dumb. ;-)
Hmm, it would actually be interesting to try to fingerprint the different bots by monitoring their behaviour in cases like these, actually, combined with, say, their reported User-Agent, referrer, etc.
