This is, as others have said, hardly new news.
So long as the link contains hard URL data, Google will be able to find it, and has been for some time. I've seen sites, for example, who's JS links contain just a string to add to the end of the URL, for example "parameter=filter1", and Google has tried sticking it on the end of that pages URL and spidering the result.
Rather handily, when its a navigation element, Googlebot seemed to get stuck in a loop for a bit, resulting in it spidering pages that had the query "Parameter1 + Paremeter1 + Parameter1 + Parameter1".
