Just catching up with this list..

It's interesting you should say that about Content-Location, I made a
similar comment in a blog post [1] and there seemed to be some
confusion over the exact semantics of the header.

As an aside, does anyone know where google/yahoo/MSN discuss this
stuff? Is it in a public setting, or is it all behind-doors talks?
