I'll look into that

Actually, URI is case sensitive: http://stackoverflow.com/a/26196170/1978950

I'll check labeledURI you mentioned.

I believe it is not a fatal condition. If you mean line 100, it is for
the case of some failure of the call. If the call succeeds and there is
no URI, then line 105 happens and the URI is considered empty.
If you are talking about the evaluation in line 21, this will be
changed, the exact string comparison is there just for testing.

I'm not sure I understand. If there is no service, the rule must
necessarily fail to allow the access before even evaluating URI, or at
least I think so. URI will only reduce the set of HBAC rules matching
certain request.
