As far as I understand the problem, for each component you could ask

        Would I ever want to come back to *this* component in *this* state
        as the result of a bookmark rather than a particular session?

If the answer is "Yes", then the next step is for the component to add
URL-based state information to the URL with #extraPath: or #updateUrl:,
and then recognize those state items with #initialRequest:.

Perhaps a good demo of this would be handy.  Maybe I can come up with
something, but Smarter People than Me might do it even faster and post
it to one of their blogs (nudge nudge).
