Section 8.3 says:

Within Simple-ref productions, senders MUST NOT:

   o  use dot-segments ("." or ".."), or

   o  have prefixes that do not match the Request-URI (using the
      comparison rules defined in Section 3.2.3 of [RFC2616]).



It should say:

Within Simple-ref productions, senders MUST NOT use dot-segments ("." or "..").
Simple-ref productions used in Multi-Status responses MUST NOT have prefixes that
do not match the Request-URI (using the comparison rules defined in Section 3.2.3
of [RFC2616]).



Notes:

The original text explicitly applies not only to Simple-ref productions used in Multi-Status responses, but also to those used in Destination Headers. Since URIs used in Destination headers may have other prefixes (for example in a cross-server COPY request), this is wrong.
