New Revision: 1206

Partially revert r1203, which in part talked about the keyword canonicalization
feature which has been reverted from Subversion.

* en/book/ch07.xml (svn-ch-7-sect-2.3.4): Rewrite wording to preserve good bits of
    r1203 whilst removing parts that spoke specifically about canonicalization.
    Undo some over-enthusiastic standardization from r1203 - say "abbreviated" not
    "also specified" in the HeadURL/URL case.
