Do you think that the header is unnecessary in that case? So you don't see any
use cases where the Geolocation header will be used to provide the location
only to the end recipient?

Any flag which says "no" will cause it to fail. A "yes" or "routing-permitted" would
allow it to go through.

More or less. I want it to say "The location provided here is for the end recipient; if
you want to do location-based call routing, please fail the call." The user can then
decided if they want to relax the privacy constraints and allow it, or not.
