+1 on the first of those, where the server is still given persmission to
ignore Content-Location in requests, but not on the second where this
was removed.

In the definition of PUT there is the following restriction which
otherwise relates to Content-Location:

  "The recipient of the entity MUST NOT ignore any Content-* (e.g.
   Content-Range) headers that it does not understand or implement
   and MUST return a 501 (Not Implemented) response in such cases."
