*new feature suggestion*

-problem statement-
Separating further the document structure from the document content will have 
3 benefits 1) would allow for separation of the design workflow and the
application developer workflow such that the design of a web page could be
changed independently of the need to make application changes 2) reduces the
amount of data in subsequent calls for pages using common document structure,
thus providing a more optimal experience for mobile devices and incrementally
reducing the stress on busy servers 3) allows for the possibility that the end
user can choose the document structure.

- solution - 
w3c to release a framework for client side templates. 
eg 

extend the use of src attribute to other elements
extend the VAR element to contain an id attribute
add a new url scheme var: that takes as its source the named var element.

- working prototype -

I have developed an open source, fully working, cross browser/cross platform
prototype using Ajax. I would be willing to transfer this to the w3c and
continue further development with the w3c.
