2.2: "The entity-body is encoded using the 
"application/x-www-form-urlencoded" media type (Section 17.13.4 of 
[W3C.REC-html401-19991224]), applied to the UTF-8 [RFC3629] encoded 
forms of the parameter values."

Note 1: HTML4 ignores the encoding issue; this is a case where a 
reference to HTML5 would actually help in practice.

Note 2: I prefer refs in the form of [REC-html] or [HTML] rather than 
[W3C.REC-html401-19991224]...


2.4: As stated earlier, just define all those parameters to be "token / 
quoted-string", and then constrain the values further separately, such as:

"The value of the scope parameter, after potential quoted-string 
unquoting, contains a set of single-SP delimited scope values." Each 
scope value is restricted to

   scope-val-char  = %x21 / %x23-5B / %x5D-7E
   ; HTTPbis P1 qdtext except whitespace, restricted to US-ASCII
"

etc.
