Perhaps we ask the spec?

"If the abs_path is not present in the URL, it MUST be given as "/" when
used as a Request-URI for a resource (section 5.1.2)."

"An empty abs_path is equivalent to an abs_path of "/"."

Now if you aren't asking about http:, but another scheme, the question can
get muddy really fast.
