I'm thinking that this approach would be for 1.4 and 1.5 -- that we introduce functionality in 1.4 and get full coverage in 1.5. And then re-open the broader discussion at that point on what works/doesn't work, and what we want to do that needs new architecture to get there.
Also, I think there's opportunity to combine some screens this way -- e.g. combine several search screens with results on the same page, and it facilitates substantially more as well... haven't necessarily thought about the menu just yet though.
Yes, I noticed this -- and I think one server-side improvement that would help might be to accept just the account id, ECA id, etc in form posts. Probably need to preserve the ability to accept the current long forms of these fields as well -- but if we can fix these so that we don't _have_ to combine the fields exactly the same way in form posts as they are done now, that will make it easier to come up with richer, more intuitive interfaces.
