The reason the 307 does not work in all cases is many LBs like HAProxy default 
to using response code 307 to mean healthy. Some LBs might even case the 
redirect. Since strictly speakin per HTTP RFC, this seems wrong to do, having a 
separate endpoint that returns a 500 level code is being pursued.
