Hi! This is definitely the right way. Current set of related
technologies includes
Formlets, HJScript, Web-routes, various template systems like Hamlet or HSX.

Ajax is just one approach of several existing. Building a
haskell-to-JavaScript generator looks more important for me. Please
look at [1] and [2]. what do you think?

Generally, it is already possible to manage client java-scripts on the
server with  HSX + HJScript [3]. On the other hand, managing pure html
forms for JScript-free apps is possible with the help of Formlets. But
when one starts using them all together, code becomes awkward.
