RE: 4xx responses for bad query strings?

> In a future revision it might also be helpful to see a note disambiguating the definition of "resource" between the HTTP and URI RFCs, as the latter suggests the query string operates *on* the resource while in HTTP, the query string (also?) helps *identify* the resource.

FWIW, the on-going revision of the URI RFC (2396) does indeed
incorporate this change:
http://gbiv.com/protocols/uri/rev-2002/rfc2396bis.html#query reads
"The query component contains non-hierarchical data that, along with
data in the path component, serves to identify a resource within the
scope of the URI's scheme and naming authority (if any)."
