  Within '[' and ']' is a predicate.  It is evaluated for each item, to
see if the item is include or not in the sequence.  It must result to a
boolean.  If it is not of type xs:boolean, its EBV is taken.  But an
EBV is not defined for a sequence of integers.  (the special case of an
integer is a shortcut for position() eq i)

  I guess what you are after is:

    tokenize($uri,'/')[position() ne last()]
