So ANYTIME anyone visits your root site (since that is what
"index.html" normally represents) they are going to have a registration
page inflicted upon them? What if they registered yesterday, shut down
their computer, and come back next week -- do they have to go through
your registration form again?

If your intent is that one must either be "logged in" before seeing
this "index page", then I'd think /any/ access that doesn't have a
"logged in" session cookie should redirect to a "log in" page -- and
this log-in page should have a link to a registration page for new users
to fill out (obviously both the "log in" and the registration pages must
NOT require a "logged in" cookie status).

Whether you return the "log in" page or the "index page" then
becomes a matter of having a valid session cookie in the request.
