Yes, but that's because this feature just isn't supported. We will never use them ourselves, but I'm willing to code in a default capture of any parameters into that specific flow/URL into the scratch context if somebody files a request for it.

Extension is only possible in the ways we explicitly support that don't involve touching system files. Replacement isn't really a thing, you deploy new flows and they ideally get registered to run at a different location, but it is possible in the latest versions to replace and override the use of existing locations altogether in a pinch. Just not generally necessary, particularly in this kind of case when the original URL is totally arbitrary anyway.

Proprietary locations that aren't in metadata should never be shared with anybody and should go through redirection of some kind to separate the published location from the mechanics of the software. Mine is at /cgi-bin/logout.cgi
