Comment (by dd32):


 Can you provide any details about the server configuration? Nginx, Apache,
 IIS? etc?
 Do you have the ability to modify/inspect the server configuration?

 What's happening: Your server is configured to only accept a short
 request, probably ~500 characters long, while WordPress can generate one
 longer than that.
 Most web servers are configured to handle a request size many times
 larger, ~8,000 is common AFAIK.

 In this case, it's really a server configuration that I don't think
 WordPress should work around, but one that we should keep in mind. We
 could convert the `load` parameter to be a base64 compressed string, we
 could encode the params somehow (using numbers to represent scripts, etc)
 but it's all to solve a problem that realistically doesn't exist on modern
