Hi Cameron,

Thank you for your reply.

As far as I understand, the bug was closed because the editor stated that some interactions between browsers and web servers were not really defined, and that there would be conflicting use cases, in the case of a PUT or a DELETE request.

In my mind, this may be true to some extent. For example, let's say I'm browsing my blog backend, opening the latest post page, and sending a successful DELETE request. If the server replies with a 204 (no content) response, what should my browser do? Nothing? Redirect to post-list?

Is there a list of conflicting use-cases? What is the state of the draft proposal? Can I help in some way?
