As a developer, I've been on projects with a Dojo-based, one-page interface.  Theoretically, should be ideal.  Pragmatically, page can become bloated, with lots of competing code segments, longer load times and possibly interdependencies (eg, trying to test a code segment independently of other segments can be quite difficult).  Instead, a RESTful design multi-page design makes testing far easier and eliminates interdependencies.

To be honest, I tend to favor modularity of such things too.  That doesn't mean there may not be things we may decide to incorporate that are inspired from one-page designs.  Our application is quite complex and I would be worried about too much irreducible complexity.

One thing I would ask is that if we go with a multi-page design, what are the aspects of one-page design that we should be looking into incorporating?
