Hi Thomas, 

I do not want to complain - I am stating an issue I am having - and I find the naming misleading. 

Which naming exactly? encodeQueryString?
I have to build an URL for a http request - key-value pairs in the query string. 

As far as I understood, application/x-www-form-urlencoded does not apply to "simple GET queries" - am I wrong?

Yes and no. Technically, a query-string is "free form", so you're free to assign any meaning you want to the unencoded "+" character; but in practice everybody uses application/x-www-form-urlencoding where "+" is synonymous for a space.
