Add do not decode description to getRequestURI

The Description for javax.servlet.HttpRequest.getRequestURI

should include some information that characters that are
encoded in the URL MUST NOT be decoded by the servlet engine, because that would be a violation
of the URL / URI formats as described in rfc1738, rfc1630 and rfc2616 ( semantics of the url
changes ) and  javax.servlet.HttpUtil.getRequestURL() would not be able to
reconstruct the original URL used.
It would also be nice if an example with an encoded slash
could be added.
