If a request URI can be expressed in RFC 2396 format without losing its
semantic meaning, one can reformat it to conform to the RFC 3986 format
while writing request out to the underlying connection using a custom
request writer

HttpCore is a set of HTTP transport components HttpClient is based upon.
Effectively HttpClient = HttpCore + support for HTTP via proxy / auth /
state management (cookies). As long as you do not mind sacrificing these
higher level functions HttpCore might be a reasonable choice for you. 

Another alternative is writing your own RequestDirector


Please note, though, DefaultRequestDirector is the single most complex
class in HttpClient.
