This is getting ridiculous.
Both sides have strong arguments.
I hadn't thought about this issue until tomcat changed it's behaviour, 
and maybe the Sun folks didn't do it as well.

This should really be clarified within the specification (and I hope 
they come up with a solution that allows us to continue using GET 
parameters as we were used to as this is an absolute necessity... maybe 
by introducing a new method or a second parameter).

Although I do not expect too much, I 've just sent a comment to JSR53 
and JSR154

I just hope that the new tomcat versions will be released soon
