Hi,

  According to RFC 2616 under the RFC 2396 interpretation of "host" and
as noted in RFC 3986 the "host" component of the authority in http URIs
cannot be the empty string. draft-ietf-httpbis-p1-messaging-05 however
does allow the empty string as host. If that is intentional it should be
pointed out clearly below the definition of the scheme's syntax.

regards,
