What is XForm' s best practice for handling the (perhaps) lesser used 
status codes such as 201 Created and the 3xx redirection codes when a 
submit is performed? For example if a PUT is submitted to a WebDav server 
that results in the creation of a new URI then a 201 status code will be 
returned with a Location header pointing to the new resource. Is this 
something that an XForms implementation should handle or should the status 
information be made available to the host environment for specific 
processing in the hosts scripting language for example?
