I say go for it if that's what you need in your app, there's clearly a
simple way of disabling them in your case, but I rather suspect this
won't become a default any time soon and for good reason IMHO.

performs with redirects vs. without them.


Probably not for everybody but there is something else:

Having the redirect means that your app needs 2 transactions per action
with all the overhead and complications that it could mean*.

*for example the data your app readed fresh in the first transaction has
no use on the second complicating the app (if consistency is mandatory
it probably requires a re-read). Depending on how the app deals with
that problem, that could be a hidden cost (paid in latency in the
magnitude of I/O and in development costs)
