*shrug*  Go ahead and break it apart -- but only if you
personally commit to keep all the pieces in sync, and easily
accessible/printable both as separate and as a single document..

That is *such* a load of crap.   'Most implementors' my
foot.  If you don't like something, OtherBill, please
don't act as though you represent the industry when you
express that dislike.

Anything that barfs on '?token' and will only work with
'?token=value' is seriously, seriously broken.  Can you name
some of these 'technologies'?  There is a wealth of reference
material that somehow fails to support the idea that valueless
tokens are 'malformed'; for starters:

RFC 2396 ยง3.4
 <URL:ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/rfc2396.txt>

Original CGI spec (such as it is):
 <URL:http://hoohoo.ncsa.uiuc.edu/cgi/env.html#query>
 <URL:http://hoohoo.ncsa.uiuc.edu/cgi/cl.html>

The still-evaolving 'new' CGI spec:
 <URL:http://cgi-spec.golux.com/draft-coar-cgi-v11-03-clean.html#6.1.8>
 <URL:http://cgi-spec.golux.com/draft-coar-cgi-v11-03-clean.html#5.0>

Just where on Earth did you *get* this idea, anyway?
