Perhaps I should clarify that when I say tomcat should be "blind" to  
parameters, perhaps I really should have said "Tomcat should not be  
discerning of parameters". It should completely _not_recognize_  
parameters. It's not that it shouldn't see them, but that it  
shouldn't recognize them as anything but a string of characters. It  
should treat the strings of characters "one", "two", "one+two",  
"one;two", "one;two=three", "one,two=three", etc, no differently  
(yes, they are distinct strings, but none is more special than any  
other). rfc 3986 basically says they should be no distinctions  
between these segment names.
