Even option 1 does not speak of encoding the httplocation. It only speaks of
encoding instance data. This raises the issue, should the location template
itself be encoded?

If we say the location template itself will be encoded then the user wont
hav an option of sending unencoded stuff in the url (unless through
templating). But if we send it raw as it is then the user can do anything he
wants.

Thanks,
Keith.
