Hello everybody,

I could not find this possibility in the mailing lists, so I would like 
to bring up this topic.
By working on html page developpement, I remarked that very often (but 
not always of course), ajax request correspond to information that are 
relative to an html page.
For example, lets define the page http://www.site.com/page.html on a 
server.
The first http verb used for this page is obviously GET.
Then the page is displayed by the navigator on the client.

Now, suppose the user modify an element of the page. It can be useful to 
send a http GETAJAX request to http://www.site.com/page.html in order to 
get the information corresponding to the new element modified by the user.
Actually the problem is adressed by sending a http GET to another page, 
for example www.site.com/page_ajax.html. But may be it can be useful to 
send a http GETAJAX to the page http://www.site.com/page.html.
Another thing which can be usefull, the same page 
http://www.site.com/page.html may have several http ajax request to 
process. So an ajax_id can be added to the http GETAJAX to differentiate 
the ajax requests.

I hope this request will be helpfull for you and other people.

Sincerely.
