Yes - one page with, say, multiple body sections would be very useful.
The user agent could then load and display the first body, display this
whilst continuing to load the other sections and associated graphics,
which would then be available for immediate display.
There needs to be a way to navigate between sections according to the
result of user input to each section, and some sort of 'hidden'
attribute to enable one section to fulfill both, say, an initial user
input form and the subsequent (for me, usually :-j ) 'please correct the
fields in red' version of the same form. Perhaps this attribute will be
in Web Forms 2 - I haven't read it in detail yet.
