OK - I admit that one probably wasn't the best example at all ;)

With 'partially' I meant that when you really start to use AJAX (e.g. rely on Frameworks like xajax or prototype etc.) you probably end up with an interface which becomes quite unusable in a text-browser-environment  (e.g. forms are not being submitted anymore because they rely on XML 
requests/on-the-fly-input-validation etc.). I think it would be easier to face this problem with completely different templates which are optimised for text-browsers, cell phones etc. (if one ever needs to add a DNS record 'on the fly' via his mobile phone ;)
