A simple question I could not find the answer to in the RFCs and elsewhere:

Is sending empty elements in a URL OK?

example: <URL>?foo=&

It seems to me that it must be, since default values of text fields and
other form elements will be empty, but just checking with the experts.

Could someone point me to the exact place in an official document where
this is covered?
