FWIW, I think mostly this *is* intentional. All that is needed is a click tracking script. Maybe therein lies the reason that the engines can't fix the seemingly easily fixed problem of 301 and 302 redirects. Maybe the fix will cause too much collateral damage to their own click through ad programs. I hate to be a conspiracist, but before the engines became so focused on marketing and selling words and clicks even to the extent of using vacant domains to sell clicks... this was not an issue.
