[Seaside] Ajax that uses server-side rendering

I am relatively new to Seaside and am uncertain about the best way to
solve some of the requirements we need to cover for a client. We do have
solutions for these, but they are tightly coupled to in-house
infrastructure and I think we can lean a lot from seeing how you guys
would have done it.
All of this is happening on Pharo 3.0, Seaside 3.1 and Magritte 3. Some
of the stuff is built using components and some using Magritte. We
prefer the latter.
Here is a relatively simple one:
We need to let a user choose a "type of ID document" in a dropdown.
Underneath this dropdown, a text input should appear via ajax (on change
of the dropdown), but it appears only for certain options of the dropdown.
This should happen via ajax, but we have one wish... we do not want to
should be changed in the browser. We'd rather fetch newly generated HTML
from the server via a "jQuery load", and replace a small chunk of the
form with this HTML. This way we let the original server-side
seaside/magritte code render that (changed) HTML snippet. (Some of our
screens are fairly complex, and we'd prefer to keep the logic for what
such a screen look like written once, and using Seaside/Magritte.)
PS: Is the seaside list the correct place to have this discussion? (as
opposed to the magritte list)
