Agree about system data but it does bring up the interesting arguments 
about REST-ful (read highly-scalable) web applications where state 
maintenance is pushed onto the client vs. server sessions. I realize 
this is a bit off-topic but I think that continuations (suitiably 
sped-up and obfuscated, perhaps?) on the client side could be a 
reasonable design for future applications.
