An example of WS-Addressing silliness

Right from the spec, we have this example of an EPR;

<wsa:EndpointReference xmlns:wsa="..." xmlns:fabrikam="...">

   <wsa:Address>http://www.fabrikam123.example/acct</wsa:Address>
   <wsa:ReferenceProperties>
       <fabrikam:CustomerKey>123456789</fabrikam:CustomerKey>
   </wsa:ReferenceProperties>
   <wsa:ReferenceParameters>

       <fabrikam:ShoppingCart>ABCDEFG</fabrikam:ShoppingCart>
   </wsa:ReferenceParameters>
</wsa:EndpointReference>

Somebody please tell me why on earth that isn’t a URI? You know, something like;

http://www.fabrikam123.example/acct/123456789?ShoppingCart=ABCDEFG
