This isn't quite the same. One thing I've realized while writing the 
context system in Panels 2 is that arguments are only one source of 
context. I also have relationships, which are a very important source of 
context, and built-in contexts, which are maybe not quite as important 
in this scenario.

So it's a half-way step, but it is only half way, and it still requires 
the context consumer to have entirely too much knowledge of the 
construction of the URL, IMO.
