They don't need to - when you go to, say, http://questionablecontent.net,
you already end up on their systems, and instead of serving you
the captcha page, they could just as well serve you any malware.
Or additionally. There is no need for a redirect.

As I understand it they also do the SSL termination for their
customer's pages.

And given just how awfully many pages are on cloudflare nowadays
they're either the NSA or a prime target of them.
