I don't know XPath well enough to help you solve you problem, but '.'  
is perfectly legal in xml attribute values and has a long tradition  
of use in separating semantic components of a name in programming  

Note that the URL parameter is not a variable in Solr.  Your problems  
seem to be occurring due to the use of systems that attempt to map  
data to variable names, which seems to me like a worse idea than  
using '.' in url paramters.
