I am not proposing a "particular browser supported semantic" for a
"specific implementation on the server". I have suggested, by way of
example, two particular patterns be supported independently of any such
implementation. I did not restrict the results to just those patterns in
case someone wishes to generalize. That is little different from the
proposed or implied XHR patterns being discussed.
