It's very vague. 'Use default values' is my own opinion (and is what
we do in the web-checking tool our company provides). Section 2.3.8
might possibly be intended to mean that the URL in the 'action'
attribute should be taken and fetched unchanged with no form parameters
at all, but that would be highly inadvisable (there is essentially no
other circumstance, other than a mobileOK test, where that URL would
be requested).

I feel that clarification of this is quite important.

I have CC'ed this message to public-bpwg-comments, as today is
apparently the last day for comments.
