Per a comment from Paul Shupak on the user's list today:

All the above said, they work even better as URI_ rules, though
they are not used that way in any SpamAssassin distribution by default.
And then, they hit a *much* larger proportion of spam and a somewhat
lower proportion os ham - i.e. the S/O ration is better when used as
URI_ rules than when used as DNS_FROM_ or RCVD_ rules (i.e. spammers
often use open relays or proxies, which avoids many rfci lists, but the
web sites themselves are still listed at rfci as non-compliant domains).

If the above statement is true, RFCI checks that only run on uri's should have 
better scores than the current rules.  It seems worth the experiment to see.
