+A CONNECT request in HTTP/3 functions in the same manner as in HTTP/2.

I think it would be simpler for a reader to assume everything functions in the same manner as HTTP/2, and only note when it doesn't.  Likewise, this document defines HTTP/3, so no need to repeat that either. IOW, an editorial suggestion I would go with:

  `A CONNECT request MUST be constructed as follows:`

just to make it much easier to read.

Actually, I would begin the paragraph with a one-line description of the method from http-core Semantics, with a normative reference, like

`The CONNECT method requests that the recipient establish a tunnel to the destination origin server identified by the request-target (Section X.x of [ref:Semantics]).  A CONNECT request MUST be constructed as follows:`
