The doc says you can mix, but you have to use a separate function to retrieve 

"It is possible for a script to receive CGI parameters in the URL as well as in 
the fill-out form by creating a form that POSTs to a URL containing a query 
string (a ``?'' mark followed by arguments). The param() method will always 
return the contents of the POSTed fill-out form, ignoring the URL's query 
string. To retrieve URL parameters, call the url_param() method. Use it in the 
same way as param(). The main difference is that it allows you to read the 
parameters, but not set them."  

Anyway, hidden fields are cleaner, and don't need a separate function.
