If it turns out that the un-decoded (raw) parameter really should never 
be returned from the Request, then it makes more sense to introduce a 
"url-encode" input module which would encode a given string, including 
the output of another module for use as a valid url in the sitemap. 
IIRC there have been users with valid use cases for this with no way to 
automatically come up with the value.
