Should it?  IMO, not unless someone stands forward with a clear case that
the current behavior for 302 is buggy.  If the current behavior is simply
ambiguous and works well enough in many situations, I think that changing
semantics would be counter to the intention for bugfix releases.

No objection here to adding 303 and 307 handlers, though.
