A content-range + content-length inside of the *response* of the 
content-location (*part*) wouldn't fix that I guess?

Defining some way of saying that the resource can be received 
async/parallel is my main goal, I thought this would be ok, maybe I can 
use another type then, or as you say later in your message, define a new 
one (though I don't fancy it, I'd like to keep within the existing specs 
as much as possible).
