--- Comment #3 from Abel Braaksma <abel.braaksma@xs4all.nl> ---
I think you are right. I mainly had a hard time finding out what a hierarchical
URI is (in unambiguous terms), but after a couple of times rereading, I found
this in the RFC:

   A path is always defined for a URI, though the
   defined path may be empty (zero length).  Use of the slash character
   to indicate hierarchy is only required when a URI will be used as the
   context for relative references.

Then I thought this still leaves schemes like palm:service/option1/option2
(apparently this really exists), which contain a slash and have a non-zero
length path, but later I see:

   In addition, a URI reference (Section 4.1) may be a relative-path reference, 
   in which case the first path segment cannot contain a colon (":") character.

To conclude, it took me a while to grasp it, but it is all there, somewhere ;),
and indeed, the test is good (and our results faulty).

As an aside, it was Oracle who defined it much easier:

   A hierarchical URI is either an absolute URI whose scheme-specific part 
   begins with a slash character, or a relative URI, that is, a URI that does 
   not specify a scheme.
