Mike do you have a better way to do it? The understanding here is that 
this is an alternative workaround for when you do not have access to 
system cron and in situations when the standard wp-cron method does not 
work. Sure, there is a very slight likelihood that you could see an ugly 
URL, but in situations where all of the above are true it should be 

If you have another idea a patch to "fix" the behavior would be welcome

P.S. If you are forced to use the work around you could setup one of the 
dozens of free ping services to hit your site in an attempt to counter 
the bad behavior
