Yes that was the rationalization but I'm trying to be practical and deal 
with the real world.

Please consider this carefully:

I have put an autodiscovery <link> element at 

<link rel="search" 
      title="LC SRU" />

In the decription file, in the template, I have:   query={searchTerms}

And Firefox recognizes the search engine, so that you can select it from the 
Firefox search box in the upper right and send  a CQL query, and it works. 
Try it.

And that would not be possible if I didn't say:   query={searchTerms}

Is that not sufficient justification?
