WMS version 1.1.1 will be supported by Mapserver 4.2. It is already in the
current CVS version I guess.

If this is a 2D coordsys you can normally simply add the parameters to the
EPSG file which comes with Mapserver.

You're right, this is a mistake in the Wiki. But the nice thing about a
Wiki is that you can even update it yourself :-)

The OGC WMS spec states that all online resources should end with ? or &,
so that a client can always append its parameters directly after the
online resource (it does not need more logic to see if it needs to append
a & first).
Hope this helps.
