 > I don't believe that removing the redirect gains us enough to warrant
 breaking the resource paradigm.

 I would like to hear a practical reason why this matters.  I respect the
 intent to build an ideologically pure API, but we're building it on top of
 HTTP... browsers... and WordPress.

 Compromises are inevitable.  I still think the "omg, everything is
 exploding" effect as Gary put it far outweighs the desire to maintain
 resource purity.
