Yes, I wanted HashInURI to become more "what to do and more important how 
to avoid" document when using hash in URI.

The example of twitter, where the search is using a hash sign
(http://twitter.com/#search?q=foo) is a "good" example of the new syndrom 
"everything is done in js, and I expose only one resource to the world", 
with lots of consequences, including on caching. Another instance of "I 
expose only one cgi for the whole site" or "one flash page that contains 
the whole website", or even "one service enpoint in WS-* world".
