This is the model that padmapper.com follows, and it has worked fairly well. Users don't have to ever leave the tool's main interface (except that listings open a new tab/window), which has had a number of benefits. Making the possible states crawlable by search engines was a pain, but in the end I think the tradeoff was well worth it.

EDIT: As swombat says below, though, this isn't a natural fit for all types of websites, and it's a bit hyperbolic/silly to call this the next model of web development. That time might come, but it's not nearly here for the vast majority of sites.
