I think that your proposal is too specific to the situation you are 
apparently in, while it adds a lot of complexity to implementations. 
Additionally it requires many roundtrips to the server.

While I don't have a specific counter suggestion, i would like to see 
those problems solved in order to be useful for a larger number of people.

Note that you can already do what you are proposing using scripts and 
technologies like XMLHttpRequest or <iframe>s.

suggestion has been sent to the whatwg list.
