Indeed, that was called out as a potential issue. But is that really a 
problem? It's easy to work around (e.g. with iframe)s if you really must 
have multiple "top-level" pages, but aren't web apps moving to a one-page 
model anyway?

The problem gets significantly more complicated with multiple top-level 
pages all taking part in the same conceptual application.
