and what if you got two of those 3XX's chained, what would be being 
described?

-> GET /A
-< 30X /B
-> GET /B
-< 30X /C
-> GET /C
-< 200 OK

does /C describe /A or /B ?

303 is a nice loose way of saying "/x may give you more information", 
stressing the "may" in that sentence, as it equally may not.
