I guess BearState have a problem with situation like this for example:

- you press submit in the form which call some function with ajax
request inside
- you need ajax response e.g. if username is taken or free
- if username is taken function should return false and stop sumbit
- waiting for "on Success" to happen is not really an option cause
validation function could finish earlier and submit this form without
really validating it

I think it is why people ask about delay - they want to have the
response still inside the same function where the request was
called ...not some time (even small time) later and outside it :)
