I noticed while working on an automated client today that,
while 301, 302, 303, and 307 have a lot to say about whether
a UA may automatically redirect a request other than GET or
HEAD, the 300 response doesn't make any mention of methods:

   If the server has a preferred choice of representation, it SHOULD
   include the specific URI for that representation in the Location
   field; user agents MAY use the Location field value for automatic
   redirection.  This response is cacheable unless indicated otherwise.

Should it?
