I'd agree that 'query' must always mean CQL. For other queries
types I'd go for something like 'query.xquery' or 'query:sparql'.

I can't understand why a server would want/need to rename the
query parameter to something other than query -- other than to
make interoperating even more difficult than it is already.

I don't go for "shorter and pithier" as being a good reason
for renaming a parameter -- it's not like this stuff is meant
for human consumption.
