It's wrong.  The resource is identified by the whole URI (or abs_path
+ query in this context).

Agreed, but I think we should fix the error mentioned above either by
removing all mention of the identified resource, or by saying it's
identified by abs_path + query.  I suppose I'd prefer the former (for
the reasoning you give), but the latter is a less disruptive fix.
