Section 3.2.1 says:

   For definitive information on
   URL syntax and semantics, see "Uniform Resource Identifiers (URI):
   Generic Syntax and Semantics," RFC 2396 [42] (which replaces RFCs
   1738 [4] and RFC 1808 [11]).

It should say:

   For definitive information on
   URL syntax and semantics, see "Uniform Resource Identifiers (URI):
   Generic Syntax and Semantics," RFC 3986 [<ref>] (which updates RFCs
   1738 [4] and replaces RFC 1808 [11] and RFC 2396 [42]).

Notes:

<ref> should be added
--VERIFIER NOTES--
The reader can follow the chain of document updates from RFC 2396 to RFC 3986, which is why we do not modify published RFCs to track document updates for referenced specifications. In any case, the updated HTTP RFCs (being produced by the HTTPBIS WG) will contain the appropriate references.
