I totally agree with you, but in this case, all your traffic containing
possible attack will wake up all security detection system. What you
speak about can be protected with a good whitelist setup with the
knowledge of the forum to secure. A blacklist will always warn and block...
It depend how you want to secure your webapp.
No setup -> blacklist with the limitation of a pattern matching protection
Setup -> whitelist with all granular filter on each parameters and url.
