Simon Thulbourn commented on COUCHDB-383:

I found it by using jQuery with JSONP.

It would be nice to relax it.

> The use of GET params in a URL is either too loose or too strict depending on your point
of view.
> Adding extra GET params that are not needed to a query works on every request except
for /dbname/_all_docs, in this event CouchDB returns an error.
> Test Case:
> /foobar/_all_docs?callback=jsonp1244562168058&_=1244562168079 
> Returns: jsonp1244562168058({"error":"query_parse_error","reason":"Invalid URL parameter:
> NOTE: this is not just a JSONP error, this is just how I found it.
> Ideally, CouchDB either needs to accept this or to error on every request with that contains
erroneous GET parameters.
