Depends what you mean by valid.  Yes it's a valid request to receive, no an 
implementation is not compliant with RFC2616 if it issues a request like this 
to an origin server.

Have a look at section 5.1.2.  An implementation is REQUIRED to issue requests 
like this to proxies, an implementation MUST handle receiving requests like 
this, an implementation MUST use the abs_path form in requests to origin 
servers and gateways, ie

PUT /test1/Users_ott_tmp_1_tst HTTP/1.1
