There are two changes I would like to make, previously mentioned deep in  
some thread:

1. Drop the trailing s from the npt syntax, which seems not to serve any  
real purpose as it only adds (a little) complexity but doesn't help  
disambiguate from any other form. It also isn't what is used in RTSP, if  
we want to align.

2. Drop the 'quotes' around strings, which are completely unnecessary when  
spaces have to be percent-encoded anyway. Simply following the rules for  
splitting name-value pairs yields a string with any special characters  

Are there any objections to either of these changes?
