My by "request entity" (no -) i mean "the entity enclosed in the
request".

The definition in 1.3 of "entity" is pretty clear on this.. so all uses
of entity which refers to specifically a request or response should
indicate so. All other uses should be assumed to be on an HTTP message
in general, not specifically a request or response.  If there is uses of
"entity" which only makes sense in one of request or response context
but it isn't specified directly or indirectly by the surrounding context
this should be fixed.
