I've only been partially following this thread, so this may have been
answered previously. Is this an accurate summary of what you're thinking of?

Clicking <a href="foo"> and <a href="foo" onlyreplace="bar"> would send the
exact same headers to the server with the exception of a single extra header
for the @onlyreplace version?

In the case of @onlyreplace, would the #bar element end up being replaced,
or just its content? Would the server be expected to reply with <div
id="bar">...</dv> or just what would would become bar.innerHTML?
