Thanks for this pointer! I have Servlet 2.4 spec available, but I guess 
it did not change much in this respect.

The important part is contained in SRV.4.1: "Data from the query string 
and the post body are aggregated into the request parameter set. [...]"

However, the container is not restricted to these two combinations. It 
could extend the aggregation behaviour to any parameter encoding it 
likes. I would go so far and assert that if the spec would someday be 
extended to enctype="multipart/form-data", the above aggregation rule 
would apply to this combination, too.
