This is OK. It is not the intention to have official SRU parameters to preceed "?". It is
just that it should be possible to have parameters being part of the base-url without the
client being aware of that parameters and in such a case the base-url may end with
"&" rather than "?". An SRU request is in my opion baseurl + request. The base-url is
a given thing and the request is build by the client. The operation is part of the SRU
request and therefore a client has to be aware that parameter.
