Customize preview removes URL query parameters of the same name and keeps only the last one

It seems that when the customizer is rebuilding some of the URLs on the page if there are multiple query parameters of the same name/key (an array) in the URL, it only keeps the last one and removes the others.

For example, while in Customizer, if you add a menu item with a custom link of /my-page/?myvar[]=A&myvar[]=B the URL of the menu for the preview is rewritten to /my-page/?myvar[]=B&customize_changeset_uuid=..., losing myvar[]=A.

This is also happening to the URL of the page itself (the preview's IFRAME src) when for example there is a form with a multi-select field submitted. Assume we have the form below on /my-page/:

    <form method="get" action="/my-page/">
          <select name="myfield[]" multiple="multiple">
            <option value="A">A</option>
            <option value="B">B</option>
            <option value="C">C</option>
            <option value="D">D</option>
          <input type="submit" value="Apply Filters">

If you select A and B and C and submit the form, it is expected that that page refreshes with the new URL of /my-page/?myfield[]=A&myfield[]=B&myfield[]=C&customize_changeset_uuid=..., however, I am seeing the following URL instead with the A and B values lost in the preview's IFRAME src: /my-page/?myfield[]=C&customize_changeset_uuid=...
