> That doesn’t feel necessary to me.   I suspect most links use &, some use ;, nothing else is valid at the moment and I don’t expect a new separator to suddenly appear.  IMO the boolean parameter to also recognize ; was better.

That's reasonable. However, I think that we are making this change in order to treat the semicolon as a "custom" separator. In that case, why not let the developer decide on a different custom separator for their own use cases? What's the difference between a semicolon and something else?
