Addresses #109: Clarify entity / representation / variant terminology

Removed entity-header adjective and ABNF and clarified distinction
between payload and representation.

Uncapitalize the phrase effective request URI so that it doesn't
dominate the prose, and define the term "target resource" to be
used instead of the "resource identified by the effective request URI".
