The sector_identifier_url is OPTIONAL unless there are multiple hosts in the redirect_uris(making what to use ambitious).    
This is in Messages perhaps an additional comment in Registration may make it clearer. 

Tracked with ticket #509.

Messages Sec

If the Client has not provided a value for <spanx style="verb">sector_identifier_url</spanx> in registration, the Sector Identifier used for pairwise identifier calculation is the host component of the registered 
<spanx style="verb">redirect_uri</spanx>

If there are multiple hostnames in the registered <spanx style="verb">redirect_uris</spanx>, the Client MUST register a <spanx style="verb">sector_identifier_url</spanx>. 
When a <spanx style="verb">sector_identifier_url</spanx> is provided, the host component of that URL is used as the Sector Identifier for the pairwise identifier calculation.</ns:clipboard>
