 From what I see the problem was that many deployed servers return a 
Content-Location header containing a URI which in fact isn't accessible 
from the outside. That's a server bug.

The header allows relative URIs, so it seems to me it would be safe for 
user agents to support the header if - for instance - it's an absolute 
path. That should still cover the majority of the use cases...
