as long as & is not followed by something that makes it an entity it's 
fine. But a new entity may be added any time. encoding is not perfect, 
because of the old browsers as pointed out by Per Einar.

The proper solution is to use ; instead of & for args separating, which 
CGI.pm and Apache::Request support if I'm not mistaken. I've just tested 
and this works with the url in question. I'll fix that one. Please check 
other occurences that you find problematic.

BTW, this is documented at:
http://perl.apache.org/release/docs/tutorials/client/browserbugs/browserbugs.html#Preventing_QUERY_STRING_from_getting_corrupted_because_of__entity_key_names
