That's not true.  For the typical three column layout, and assuming a
detail page, the centre column should be sent first, and rendered incrementally,
so that users can start reading it, either completely, or enough to
determine whether they are in the right place, and the other columns 
should follow.

(Personally, I feel that better support for link elements would have 
removed the need to embed the index level pages in the detail level
pages.)
