Comment (by dd32):

 > No they shouldn't, at least not unencoded.

 In URL's produced, sure.

 However, users should not be expected to encode the values themselves,
 many links/sites do not encode them themselves, which leads to this case
 of users encountering issues when pasting the links in.

 [] should be allowed to be entered, they shouldn't be striped, perhaps
 they should be encoded or similar however.
