At least *this* I can explain :)

A request should always be considered harmful - bad - and evil. You should 
never directly use request parameters directly to e.g. to construct a path or 
even a sql statement. (it's not totally bad currently because we use a 
prepare statment with e.g. esql - anyway)

There should be a contract for the request parameters to keep your application 
as safe as possible. We don't have that yet and are now trying to add another 
way letting those possibly evil values into our system.

I thought this should be taken into consideration... and so I came up with a 
possible concept.

I often really wished so... *sigh* ..but there is alway room for improvement.
