I decided to use this standard. It was designed by Java people I think. I have 
never heard about nesting being a requirement. Can you give me a use case? 
Also, quoting should work in the usual style. HTML is able to encode any type 
of data in the URI, so should the DSN string.

That is a horrible idea. The point of having one way of connecting to 
databases is that the user would not need to learn different ways of doing 
it. It would be very disappointing if you do not follow this pattern. This 
way we could never embrace this DB driver.
