CVE Request -- DokuWiki: XSS and CSRF due improper escaping of 'target' parameter in preprocessing edit form data

Hello Kurt, Steve, vendors,

  a cross-site scripting (XSS) and cross-site request forgery (CSRF) flaws were
found in the way DokuWiki, a standards compliant, simple to use Wiki, performed
sanitization of the 'target' parameter when preprocessing edit form data. A
remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted URL, which once visited by a
valid DokuWiki user would lead to arbitrary HTML or web script execution in the
context of logged in DokuWiki user.

Proof of Concept URL:

Could you allocate a 2012 CVE id for this issue? (one is enough because
only 'target' parameter isn't properly escaped, leading to XSS or CSRF
{see [2] for further examples})

Thank you && Regards, Jan.
