Hi Jean Louis:

Could you provide examples of URI behavior that you would like that Hyperbole does not presently support.  We would like to understand your use cases.  Specific examples would help and could lead to a good discussion.

I see the page.

It looks as being hard coded only for Org mode but not for general
emacs. It would be more useful to define general handler for Emacs for
man: URI that is then only invoked by Org mode.
