Still is.

Squid is one of the more acceping softwrae out there. We have a 64KB
limit on any one HTTP line and on the total header size. Older Squid are
less accepting - note that Squid-2.7 came out when AJAX was just growing
up and jQuery was a nasty hack to make JS work.

The HTTPbis WG is recommending no more than 4KB in one URL and software
supports at least 1KB URLs. These numbers are gained from measurements
of what common software in use will accept and/or generate.

The above mentioend URL is (beyond looking like someone went crazy) ...
4.5KB large.
