Yes, finally I got some time. Sorry that so late!

This would be great!

This can be good for now I think. We need to get the code ASAP to study
and maybe can later improve main Aida to incorporate single page
functionality in it. Here I also have some ideas, Herbert also, then
there is Iliad approach...

My current idea is to gradually go from usual website like pages to more
single page apps, but without need for a separate support for them. Just
the extension of the current WebApp support. Well, we'll see if this is
achievable, otherwise we'll go with your approach.
