Note that I think that AJAX, drag-and-drop and all of this stuff is much, much
higher level than even viewlets, let alone content providers. Both, content
providers and viewlets, APIs have nothing to say about the interaction with
the view or other content providers/viewlets. This type of contract was
purposefully deferred to higher level APIs. For example, in SchoolTool we
have no need for those type of things.
