For the fun of it I just now fired off Chrome and Firefox against a 302 with 
content and they redirected automatically. curl also works the same way.

The CGI interface used with for example Apache even inserts contents by itself 
and that has not caused a problem to browsers for a very long time, neither on 
POST nor GET responses.
