royfielding requested changes on this pull request.

Doesn't this beg the question "what if the request is for a URI that does not have a mandatory authority component?" All of the other cases are described.  I would add something like:

  If the scheme does not have a mandatory authority component and
  none is provided in the request target, the request MUST NOT contain
  the ":authority" pseudo-header and "Host" header fields.
