I don't know who changed it, but the why is obvious.
'match' was clearly a bug, since it only found an 
invalid character if it was at the beginning of an id.

I think that it's a bad idea to allow '?'s in ids
and am sorry if it was allowed. In general, I don't
like to see characters in ids that need to be quoted.
I'm not happy that ' ' was added, although 
I understand why.
