No - that's an even MORE insidious bug. Because when you ask for 
http://www.drupal.org/taxonomy/horses&cars with "Clean URLs" on, it turns 
into something like ?q=taxonomy/horses&cars, which means that a new GET 
parameter called "cars", with no value, is created. Certainly not what you 
intend. I think people have tried %26 in Drupal too (the decimal encoding 
of &), and there was a further problem with that.
