I'd like to second Julian's suggestion to use a URL format that  
doesn't expose the details of the underlying implementation. (Tell  
your admin to read up on apache URL rewriting.)

In your example, the name of the script handling the search  
(errata_search.php) and the name of its parameters (rfc, eid) are  
exposed, so it'll be difficult to change the underlying implementation  
in the future without changing the URLs.
