Should it be legal to have spaces in the path of a form's action line??

Example:

<form method="POST" action="/bin/do-something/with/some spaces in path/">

I would like to use this sort of action line to invoke "do-something" as a
CGI-script with PATH_INFO set to "/with/some spaces in path". NCSA httpd
truncates the PATH_INFO at the first space. Is this the right thing to do?
If not, why not. If so, how hard is it to fix??
