Why?  It seems cleaner to me to use parameters. The way it is 
implemented now uses the javax.portlet restricted namespace and it 
doesn't clutter up the url - which is typically used for navigation.  I 
thought about adding the stuff to the url, but in the end it seemed that 
the url would just end up big and ugly.
