5.4. Host

If the authority component is missing or undefined for the target URI, then the Host header field MUST be sent with an empty field-value.

5.1 defines "target URI" as being an absolute URI, and http URIs always have an authority component, so this requirement seems meaningless.

target URIs are not limited to http and https. Consider proxies for ftp, gopher, wais, urn, etc.
