There is no such "incremental update" model in Seaside. Seaside cannot
automatically figure out what components changed, and even if it
could, Seaside cannot address the affected DOM elements.

Seaside was designed for plain HTTP, not AJAX.

You can easily build such a model on top of Seaside though. I have,
and several other people, did such things.
