In the section about AJAX, JSF 2.0 spec (final draft) talks about partial requests...
This sounds rather strange. My perception was that the AJAX is about partial responses. What a sense to send partial requests? Requests are comparatively small anyway! Besides, a partial request may complicate restoring component tree on the server and made things fragile, but this largely depends on what they mean with these words.
