    952    If the port is equal to the default port for a scheme, the normal
    953    form is to elide the port subcomponent. Likewise, an empty path
    954    component is equivalent to an absolute path of "/", so the normal
    955    form is to provide a path of "/" instead. The scheme and host
    956    are case-insensitive and normally provided in lowercase; all
    957    other components are compared in a case-sensitive manner.
    958    Characters other than those in the "reserved" set are equivalent
    959    to their percent-encoded octets (see <xref target="RFC3986"
    960    x:fmt="," x:sec="2.1"/>): the normal form is to not encode them.

     953   to elide the port subcomponent. When not being used in absolute form as the
     954   request target of an OPTIONS request, an empty path component is equivalent
     955   to an absolute path of "/", so the normal form is to provide a path of "/"
     956   instead. The scheme and host are case-insensitive and normally provided in
