I don't think parameters should be used for simple media types.
For them, object is really a special sort of link that embeds
the result; normal links don't have such parameters.  I think 
HTML is being confused with a multimedia authoring language here.

If parameters are relevant to such media types, I believe they
would be considered presentational and therefore ought to be
handled by style sheets, not HTML.
