data: doesn't use query in practice.  As in, any '?' that happens to be 
in there is totally accidental.

about: is not standardized enough across UAs to really reason about.

Hence my question: which schemes are not "special", widespread, and 
actually use '?' to mean something?  Specific use cases for this would 
make it clearer whether mutating the query is a meaningful operation.
