Given that you'd have to radically rewrite the app anyway to use an<br>offline database instead of just using HTTP, why would we reuse the URI<br>query syntax feature? It seems like it'd be better (from a consistency
<br>with existing specs point of view) to use the fragment identifer. No?</blockquote><div><br>That's an option, but then you can't use the fragment identifier for its scroll-to behaviour when you use it to pass parameters. Also, when retrofitting an existing app, this requires changing the sources of links as well as the destination pages.

Neither of them had the money to pay him back, so he canceled the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?" Simon replied, "I suppose the one who had the bigger debt canceled." "You have judged correctly," Jesus said. [Luke 7:41-43]
