You will need to pass in `TransportContext` as a parameter if you do that, unless you go back changing the callers of `getAuthorities()` to catch `IllegalArgumentException`. I'm now thinking it is better for the callers of `getAuthorities()` to catch `IllegalArgumentException` and then call `fatal`.

One other minor comment:

- I would remove the word "successfully" as this is a failure case so it is implied.
