Oh.

Proposal:

"HTTP requests often do not carry the absolute URI ([RFC3986], Section 
4.3) for the resource they are intended for; instead, the value needs to 
be inferred from the request-target, Host header and other context. The 
result of this process is the "Effective Request URI"."

(I think have the ABNF components from which the URI is derived from is 
fine).
