Section 2.7.1 says:

     http-URI = "http:" "//" authority path-abempty [ "?" query ]
                [ "#" fragment ]

It should say:

     http-URI = "http:" "//" authority path-abempty [ "?" query ]


Per http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#section-4.3 "URI scheme specifications must define their own syntax so that all strings matching their scheme-specific syntax will also match the <absolute-URI> grammar."
