a rendered page, different sections with the viewlets, with the
portlets, the content, .... and on diazo rules it would be much easier
to define the rules. As right now is the moment to discuss about this
subject(diazo theme is really in early step and plone5 is a possible
target to change this), my idea is to talk about it today at FWT meeting
if it's ok with you.

What if we expose each of these building blocks via HTTP and let diazo
fetch them via the href attribute?

This way we can also provide alternative dynamic user interfaces, where
we fetch the contents for a page via Javascript AJAX calls.
