From the discussion, the primary value of Location seemed to be when 
using POST, to know exactly the URI assigned (if any), for the 
"shopping basket" scenario.
I didn't see arguments against the value of the usage, and since the 
problems arose when trying to cache using Location (e.g., the security 
issue) as a key, if we don't try and cache, I don't remember any problems.

I interpreted the discussion as: don't try to use Location to cache, 
but keep it in.
