RFC 3986, "Uniform Resource Identifier (URI): Generic Syntax", January 2005

Section 3 says:

      hier-part   = "//" authority path-abempty
                  / path-absolute
                  / path-rootless
                  / path-empty

It should say:

      hier-part   = "//" authority path-abempty
                  / path-absolute
                  / path-noscheme
                  / path-rootless
                  / path-empty

Notes:

There are four ABNF rules for path, but the following words says:

'These restrictions result in five different ABNF rules for a path (Section 3.3)'

And in section 3.3, there are five rules.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
PSA: There is no error here, because the hierarchical part excludes
paths that are not preceded by "//", whereas the path rule includes
paths that are not preceded by "//" (thus five rules for "path" but
only four rules for "hier-part").
