Yes, great suggestion Loune, as Alexey said.
I've been following the WHATWG mailing list for quite some time now and,
as far as I remember, the "AJAX problem" has already been discussed. Even
the specification (if I am not mistaking) provides the means of
tackling/solving the problem, see Session history and navigation .
Yet, as I see it, your suggestion is more elegant and easier to use. The
state objects defined by WA 1.0 are very good, but they might be "way too
much" for simple usage.
