Haha. Well, I just wasn't thinking straight (for some reason I kept substituting "location" for "referer")

Actually, I can't really think of any good security measures that can be messed with by faking referer headers. The few times I've had to fake them myself was for automating really badly "secured" web apps. Usually all you'll mess up are website statistics - which are unreliable anyway.
