It seems that the bug resides in url-default-expander in Emacs' URL library:

* Welcome to IELM *  Type (describe-mode) for help.
ELISP> (defun test-url-expand ()
         (let ((relative (url-generic-parse-url "?foo"))
               (base (url-generic-parse-url "http://foo/bar/baz.html")))
           (url-default-expander relative base)
ELISP> (test-url-expand)
[cl-struct-url "http" nil nil "foo" 80 "/bar?foo" nil nil nil]

If the page http://foo/bar/baz.html contains a link ?foo, the link should point to http://foo/bar/baz.html?foo, but W3 currently makes it http://foo/bar?foo.
