Related to that, 

- snip -
If a proxy receives a request without any path in the request-target and 
the method specified is capable of supporting the asterisk form of 
request-target, then the last proxy on the request chain MUST forward 
the request with "*" as the final request-target.

For example, the request


would be forwarded by the proxy as


after connecting to port 8001 of host "".

But what if the method does not support the asterisk? What is supposed 
to happen for:

   GET HTTP/1.1
