W3C recommends the using ";" instead of "&" as a separator in a url-query.

jquery should have the possibility to change the separator via a global option.

Wow, I don't think I ever knew that, or if so I have forgotten it thoroughly. Seems like several projects have been asked about this:

One possible implementation would be to add a variable like jQuery.ajaxSettings.paramSeparator and also allow that to be passed in via ajax options. At the moment we have a couple of global regexps compiled at load time that use ampersand to recognize urls. Those would need to be recreated at each call to $.ajax instead.

This smells like bikeshed/feature creep. Marking for review.

Could be interesting - let's discuss this during the 1.7 roadmap discussion.

On second thought, let's push this off to a plugin (since Ajax is extensible now) - and we can reintegrate it later.
