Details

(Whiteboard: [specification][type:bug])

What did you do?
================
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/Location says "The Location response header only provides a meaning when served with a 3xx status response."

What happened?
==============
https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7231#section-7.1.2 states "For 201 (Created) responses, the Location value refers to the primary resource created by the request."


What should have happened?
==========================
The wiki shall not state, that location can be used only with 3xx responses.

Is there anything else we should know?
