Sounds reasonable. Does it also make the body available in this case?

The developer is then free to select whichever option they want.

Umm. I think HttpClient and wget must disagree:

$ wget --server-response 
--12:48:55--  http://www.blooberry.com//indexdotpreview/html/index8.htm
            => `index8.htm'
Resolving www.blooberry.com... done.
Connecting to www.blooberry.com[]:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response...
  1 HTTP/1.1 300 Multiple Choices


A telnet to port 80 for that page also gives 300 Multiple Choices.

I'm not sure what the docs should say other than pointing out that 
you'll need to parse or display the body in some non-HTTP way to get any 
sense out of it.
