What threat are you trying to avoid? It is upon you to tell what is safe. If you know there are three possible values, you can try something like
m{^(/path1|/path2|/path3)/MyApp$}
Someone can still tweak the config to point to a wrong path (valid for a different server). You can even include other conditions into the if, not only the single match.
