Term for the requested resource's URI

Description

We need to come up with a term to denote "the URI that can be inferred from examining the request-target and the Host header."

I think that definition should go into either Part 1, Section 4.1.2 ("request-target") or Section 4.2 ("The Resource Identified by a Request").

request-target allows 4 different formats:

request-target = "*" / absolute-URI / ( path-absolute [ "?" query ] ) / authority

As far as I can tell, Request-URI only needs to be defined for the 2nd and 3rd case.

In case 2 it would be the request-target.

In case 3, it would be "http:" + value of host header + request-target.

But then, what about https? Do we need to consider this in this context? Or should we potentially not include the scheme, thus just use

hier-part [ "?" query ]

? (in which case "Request-URI" would be a bad choice of names).

I believe that "Effective Request URI", as proposed in http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-archive/2009Sep/att-0051/draft-hodges-strict-transport-sec-05.plain.html, would be a good choice.
