    If Content-Location is included in a response message and its value
    is the same as the effective request URI, then the response payload
    SHOULD be considered the current representation of that resource.

Just sanity checking my understanding of the above, that at that instant 
there is one, and only one, resource representation associated with the 
resource identified by the effective request URI. Not in some strange 
philosophical sense, but in the sense that no form of negotiation could 
have resulted in any other resource representation being sent by the 
origin server (for instance no possibility that negotiation over the 
accept header could have provided a different representation).

Best,

Nathan
