What I tried to express is that if you try to update 100 tiny DOM
elements as part of an AJAX request you certainly run into troubles.
It is much easier to update a single big part with as many enclosed
DOM nodes as you want.

No nobody ever proposed that.

With AJAX this is difficult, in fact I have not seen a working
solution. For normal HTTP we have pretty decent stuff that is going to
be supported in the future too.
