I don't think the spec should care, unless there are specific cases were 
we need to use this code or that we need to add clarity.  Adding an 
example with '#' could help with it.

I would say that only if the there request-uri or subject uri are known to 
the server as previous URIs that have moved permanently then yes, 301s is 
what I would expect.  This falls in line with HTTP, so not sure we'd need 
to restate it.
