I recently read RFC 2396 which defines the generic URI syntax
and especially the URL syntax.
I recognized, that

 * Zope forbids many characters in ids (with the error message
   "not allowed in URLs"), that are legal characters
   in URL path segments:

      generally allowed in URL's: -_.!~*'()
         Zope accepted:            _. ~

      allowed in path segments:   :@&=+$,
         Zope accepted:                 ,

   This, probably, is not a big problem.
   But, it would be easy to fix.

 * Zope allows space characters in (ObjectManager) id's.
   The space is not a valid URL character.

   Zope forbids spaces in property ids.

 * The URL path segment syntax provides for a parameter section
   suffix where each parameter is introduced with ';'.

   Future Zope versions should probably take care of this
   (recent) extension.

   It might, too, provide a good way to pass values
   in URLs without the pollution of the query string.
