We've already agreed to allow relative URIs in the Location header.

The remainder of this ticket -- handling invalid input -- has been on hold, while we waited for the IRI WG to come up with a spec.

AIUI that work now looks like it'll be going to the W3C, and may take some time. Given that, I propose we mention that some implementations might do error handling / processing on the Location payload, and leave it at that; if a spec does pop up before we finish, we can revisit.

Thoughts?

Regards,
