I would replace it with two sentences that explain how the URI
is used in HTTP messages, first for proxies and then for origin servers.
It really isn't necessary to talk about semantics, identifying, or
even the resource in this context.
That is discussed in detail in 5.1.2. Perhaps even a bit too detail..
Which reminds me that 5.1.2 starts saying...:
"The Request-URI is a Uniform Resource Identifier (Section 3.2) and
identifies the resource upon which to apply the request."
It's not really a URI. We need to clean this up either in context of
this issue, or when doing the RFC2396->3986 transition.
