Urk, bad idea.

The use of Location with MOVE is to be consistent with the semantics  
of the 201 response code.

So, the suggested text has to be more precise. Perhaps:

"The use of the Location header with the 207 status code is  
intentionally undefined."

However, even this I'm starting to feel is a bad idea. Why do we stop  
at Location? Why not create a table with all HTTP headers and state  
whether they should be used with 207?
