Good sleuthing, I certainly haven't found the docu= mentation for UnsafeRedirectUnknown. Although I did find this about it:

http:/= /permalink.gmane.org/gmane.education.ezproxy/12863

Our exproxy config file is attached, courtesy of our IdM people, in case yo= u'd like to read the whole thing. We are also using RedirectSafe.

One thing we do is to generate the EZproxy config file. Our Electronic Reso= urces Assistant keeps a spreadsheet of databases, subscription, URLs, extra= EZproxy settings, and that get transformed and (I believe) tacked on the e= nd. You see a little bit with the Group directive. You might be able to use a similar approach to manage a n= umber of RedirectSafe entries. A spreadsheet where one column says "no= -proxy" or something, then that could cause a RedirectSafe to be gener= ated for the matching host. In any event, automatically generating the high-maintenance parts of the EZproxy config = has been a big win here. It lets our Electronic Resources Assistant tweak t= he EZproxy settings without asking the proxy admins to do manual editing or= cut and paste.

Best,
