Hello.

Issue 11 "URI includes query" [1] does not seem to be fully fixed.  The
issue fixes missing query part in request-target BNF.  But it is also
missing in HTTPbis part 1 section 4.1:

   A non-transforming proxy MUST NOT rewrite the "path-absolute" part of
   the received request-target when forwarding it to the next inbound
   server, except as noted above to replace a null path-absolute with
   "/" or "*".

This MUST should forbid changing both path-absolute and query parts of
the request-target.

I am not sure if issue 11 should be reopened or a new issue created for
this one.

Regards,
  Dmitry
