My own experiments with Saxon-CE and JQuery in PhoneGap have been very enjoyable, in which case all of your business and presentation logic are bundled into XSLT2 stylesheets, with a very thin layer of Ajax, which really constitutes another framework. In this case, when you take PhoneGap away and replace it with a native web OS (Firefox OS), you are left with a very thin framework for SPA.
To return to the subject of my previous post, if I was to create a "book" as a single page application (and not just use EPub3), this is the sort of framework I would target, for exactly my previous reasons. So from that point of view, I'm very pleased with the way technology is currently evolving.

I'm going to get into this once, and then hope it takes on a life of its own. I believe it is important to put this down in words; how not to suck at things. Precision, concision, vision, decision. This is like asking "is this measurable, is this actionable?" But this is easier, I have found.
When you describe a thing, are you accurate? Are your facts correct?
Have you used ten words where five are required? Is your argument more complete when you say less?
Do you have a clear and compelling message?
Are you able to act on the information available?
