I agree this is a bug.

Senthil -- re "1)", the paragraph you refer to (quoted by the OP) is
relevant.  The fact that it doesn't specifically mention redirection is
not relevant.

Re "2)": I don't know how digest auth works, but the paragraph you quote
from appears to be there for explanation rather than for prescribing how
digest auth or HTTP work (i.e. it appears to be "non-normative").  This
bug doesn't say that redirected requests shouldn't contain the
Authorization header.  It says that the Authorization header for an old
request shouldn't be sent with a new request (though it may turn out the
new one is equal to the old one in some cases).
