IMO, inter-specification interfaces are much better than string concatenation,
as they tend to be much easier to check for unintended side-effects. We've been
moving toward this way of specifiying, at least in DOM specs.

See, for example, the definition of the FormData constructor [1], which defers
to the "constructing the form data set" algorithm in HTML, which should be the
most stable approach.
