That is exaclty the problem. The more different exception hierachies get
introduced the more re-throwing occurs. I really like the error outputs with
five different stack traces for a single source of exception.

So we have:
- re-throwing isn't nice
- if we don't rethrow all usages of HttpGet&Co need an extra catch
- third option: don't use the java.net.URI internally

All three: not nice!
