     I think you misunderstood what I meant. In HTTP 2.0, the following 
sentence was added to the description of HTTP 303: "This status code is 
applicable to any HTTP method."

     Meaning, although it was originally meant to be returned in 
response to HTTP POST, it is now legal to return from HTTP 
GET/PUT/DELETE as well. At least, that is my interpretation.
