From 7231:
    Except for responses to a HEAD request, the representation of a 303
    response ought to contain a short hypertext note with a hyperlink to
    the same URI reference provided in the Location header field.
So tweaking 303 to return the content of Location: would be weird, even 
with the introduction of a new conneg header.

Baroula que barouleras, au tiéu toujou t'entourneras.
