So do browsers actually leave readyState 2 when encountering a redirect?  
If they go to 3 in between or so there might be some issue, otherwise I  
don't think there is except perhaps for some note that indicates that  
browsers mustn't go to readyState 3 in case of a redirect. Would something  
like that work?
