To: HTTP Working Group <ietf-http-wg@w3.org>
Proposal:

In p2 Section 9.5, add a paragraph after the examples (before "There are circumstances..."):

"""
Some recipients attempt to recover from Location fields that are not valid URI references. This specification does not mandate or define such processing, but does allow it (see Section 1.1).
"""
