ahah - So that's how it's done

The wiki has a discussion about AHAH (Asychronous HTML and HTTP) that describes an interesting approach to building dynamic pages - but I can't help wondering why the browser developers (like the WHAT-WG) just don't implement client-side includes? Something simple like <div src="latest.html" /> This avoids the need for client side script and ensures the browser can correctly manage connections, caching, authentication, etc.
