DynaWeb suffers from this, and in addition, it has named stylesheets
and whatnot, so there can be quite a large number of HTML "pages"
associated with any addressed element in the SGML document being
accessed. In addition, the auto-generated TOC's might be interesting
for Spiders...

True enough. DynaWeb has 3 subdocument addressing modes (read: URL
formats), and uses the ?foo=bar construct extensively... 

I should note that DynaWeb is a native HTTP server.
