Description: Note: I have discussed this via email with Tim and Federico briefly...
Hello, I was curious if you could support giving >1 value per a single parameter, e.g., like (2) instead of (1) below
This would allow shorter URLs, but as you have said, will require an extra parsing step, and the commas can potentially be a problem.
I don't feel strongly about this, but might be a bit easier for complex queries.

Comment: Hi Scott, as you rightly said this will become more complex in queries that might contain commas, for example scientific in name authorships or locations. Also http by default already has a standard way of giving mulit value parameters and making use of it is much simpler and safer as all libraries for http/urls usually can deal with it out of the box.

Comment: Does this also relate to PF-1096 and PF-925?
