What about using the two ;-)
1/ test if the URI is absolute. For this, you can use Excalibur's 
SourceUtil.getScheme() which performs a strict control on scheme syntax 
without using a regexp.
2/ if not, use the regexp only on the part before the '?' (BTW, if '?' 
is part of the URI, it should be encoded as %3F
