Oops, sorry, I meant to give a couple of examples (above) of existing
approaches to maintain user UI state. [1] involves page refresh so it
has the flickering problem, and [2] is custom-built data over AJAX,
which is neither bookmarkable nor easy to implement. You could add
other variants of [2] that are bookmarkable (e.g. Gmail) but all
involve a custom, complex, server-and-client framework. Of course,
there's also framesets/iframes, but that also requires server content
tailored for this interface -- and it breaks bookmarking.
