Well, for quite a few others, CMS means a lot more stuff, then content
management systems :) Despite this fact, we do associate the context
The "XML and script" that Hixie suggests instead of Ajax could equally
be already built into Drupal. We do use the PHP scripting language, and
handle quite a lot of XML stuff from generation to parsing. Isn't Drupal
already "XML and script" capable? It is. In fact PHP itself is. Does
Drupal or PHP "support" Ajax? Nope. It is a different context.
Hixie is too far off. Ajax might not be the best name, but "XML and
script" will definitely not work.
