Bug in resource method matching algorithm

sorry that it is so late, but I think I found a bug in the JAX-RS
specification: We forget to add "the number of capturing groups with
non-default regular expressions (i.e. not '([^/]+?)') as the tertiary
key (descending order)" to chapter 3.7.2 (Request Matching), point 3
(identify method) as in the points one and two. It must be placed as
third bullet to 3 (b) "Sort M in descending order as follows".

I hope it's not too late.

best regards
