Fully agree

My personal observation is that: In many case for develop a web
application with asincronus approach (it does not appeal to call it
ajax :-) the concept of "canonical form" isn't correct, because the
entire application is a form but whit many target (actions).

In this case, in future, an approach Xform-compliant with one
conceptual greater separation  is preferible.
