I think an optimization that enables the server to strip unnecessary content is a MUST.
It seems the browser will need to make a distinction between a regular request and a request invoked by a bookmark.
In case of a bookmark the server should not strip content so the browser must let him know that.
In a single page application AJAX updates can be originated in 2 roots:
1. The user clicks something in the navigation panel
2. The user clicks an action button inside the content panel
An example of use case #2 can be clicking a "save" button.
In this case the "<a>" tag is usually not used but a button, this means that other tags the "<a>" should have the "onlyreplace" attribute.
In this example the URL should not be remembered by the history.
There are other cases of use case #2 where the URL should be remembered - like a "next" button on a page-able data grid.
I think this solution is good for changes of the entire content panel.
When a specific widget needs to update a data binding solution may be better.
This means the "onlyreplace" will probably be always the defaults.
