Wouldn't that be a violation of 13.4 - Use navigation mechanisms in a 
consistent manner?

No, I want a way to only reveal the changed content on a page and hide
everything else except for a controll or two that I may need to use.

For instance, When I follow a link to a form, I want the form, not a
cluttered page with a form somewhere deep inside it.

Do you mean you want a way to skip breadcrumbs?
