Not in this case

This is internet, we don't need any kind of intermediary to achieve our
needs. You could choose more than one technique to do the job, not only KSS

Not in this case: you could do the same without KSS

I'm doing this since the begining with gmail. do gmail use kss? no. There
are a lot of people doing non-untrosive javascript without KSS

This is the real case: the computer needs to do 2 passes to achieve the real
result. Without KSS you create the non AJAX page and if the client has
javascript make the transformation. With KSS there are another pass to do
the same

Not to much minimalism, isn't it?
