I agree, but are the implications really that obvious (because, as  
usual, they are not explained)...
What nobody mentioned so far is not only the problem when you mail an  
URL to somebody but the much more subtle transfer of an URL by the  
referer field in the HTTP header. If you have links in your  
application that point to some other web site, your URL is disclosed  
to this server (the referer field is typically added to the log files).
