And we don't allow fragments in Location or Content-Location either,
with both referencing absoluteURI and not URI-reference. Neither 2068,
2396 or 3986 (in the form of absolute-URI) allows fragments in this

So imho it's sufficient to just say that the behavior is unspecified if
you return any other forms of URIs including those with fragments, if
anything at all needs to be said on the subject.
