Section 4.2 says:

      relative-part = "//" authority path-abempty
                    / path-absolute
                    / path-noscheme
                    / path-empty

It should say:

      relative-part = "//" authority path-abempty
                    / path-absolute
                    / path-noscheme
		    / path-abempty    ; this was added
                    / path-empty

Notes:

As written, the ABNF excludes "/" being a valid URI. It is hard to believe that href="/" when converted to a URI, would be illegal.
