Hi Lina,

in usual cases I'd propose that you only need the single-page-uid and 
the news-record-uid, perhaps the backlink-pid.

In the class pi/class.tx_ttnews.php there is a function for constructing 
the URL:
getSingleViewLink(&$singlePid, &$row, $piVarsArray, $urlOnly = false)
but I suppose you can't always know which params to fill in.

As long as you link only to single-view I suppose you can omit 
categories and many other options because when you know already the 
single-news-uid then most other options aren't important for any choice. 
And by the way the other parameters should be build correctly by realUrl 
or coolUri when you transfer the correct base-parameters.

One Interesting Parameter is perhaps a special page of the pagebrowser 
when an article is splitted in several sub-pages. But it would be a 
special extension if you'd need that.
