PUT - "store under" vs "store at"

Description

8.6.  PUT
    The PUT method requests that the enclosed entity be stored under the
    supplied Request-URI.

Several people thought "under" implies "at a subpath of the Request-URI". To reduce confusion, this should be changed from "under" to "at".

From [1158]:

Replaced the general prohibition on unrecognized Content-* header fields with a specific prohibition of Content-Range (the only field for which it is an actual problem) and a general requirement regarding checking for consistency. Unfortunately, this required rewriting the entire section on PUT to get rid of the misconceptions about storing resources and reflect how PUT is actually implemented in practice.
