yes, you are right and I agree with you. In fact my first revision of 
firewalls did exactly that, by explicitly defining the rule "delete 
'/api/firewalls/:firewall/:rule' do" in server.rb. In the next revision 
however I moved this rule into the Firewalls collection in order to take 
advantage of the rabbit DSL - auto generation of documentation, 
validation of params etc.

I haven't tinkered around with Rabbit enough to know off-hand whether 
its worth trying to implement the original functionality (DELETE 
/:firewall/:rule_id) there (Michal?). If not then I suggest we just 
restore the original rule and don't use Rabbit for this particular case.
