This is our own extension. I agree it's strange, similar to query
parameters in URIs:


The ";" is a sub-delim in RFC 3986 (Uniform Resource Identifier (URI):
Generic Syntax) - see also http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986 - quoting:

5.4.  Reference Resolution Examples
Within a representation with a well defined base URI of


We have used ";hash" and not "?hash" because the "?" is a gen-delim and
not a sub-delim; the correct syntax would need to be "?hash=true", also
other options would need to be added with a "&", in the form
"?hash=true&index=true" instead of the shorter ";hash;index".

I'm not saying that a "JSOP path" should be an "RFC 3986 URI". But I guess
a "path" would be somewhat similar (possibly simpler), and have a somewhat
similar extension mechanism for additional features.
