You say that as though it's a bad thing!  Whenever we discuss or 
disagree on the mailing list, I find that's a good case for narrowing 
down what can be done in implementations of RFC2518bis; to reduce 
variety between implementations, improve interoperability and have a 
complete spec that doesn't send people running to the mailing list all 
too often.

We can at least think and talk about the issue -- if we *do* come to 
consensus that Location header is not appropriate in 207 responses (or 
other new response codes defined by WebDAV, or new methods defined by 
WebDAV) then any of that would be good information to add to the spec.  
OTOH if we come to consensus that we shouldn't restrict Location header 
use but leave it undefined on most response types, I hope there's a 
good reason for that which would come out in a discussion.
