Yup, that's one way to do it if you don't have an actual requirement to
expire sessions for security reasons. In our case we actually wanted it
to expire and even have a little helper that will ping the server
without "touching" the session and throw browser back to the home page
when left unattended after some number of minutes. So handling expiry of
sessions on Ajax calls is important in some cases.
