As Kevin pointed out, we are not working on the HTTP/HTML form
processing specification. We are working on an authentication
protocol. Restricting the protocol to forbid multiple parameters with
the same name does not break conformance with anything.

I think that we have discussed the majority of the technical issues
regarding multiple parameters with the same name. I could respond to
your individual points, but I don't think that would get us any closer
to agreement.

Can we get +1/-1 on multiple parameters with the same name from people
without or e-mail addresses?

Clearly, we (JanRain) are -1.
