I guess that may have been too much hand waving on my part. So let me
ask you this question: if the grammar were to only specify "URI" and no
particular kind of URI, yet the kinds of URIs allowed must have to pass
some sort of review before their use in the Location header is
considered acceptable, would you find favor in this approach?

And if so, how would you implement it?
