My sense is that SPAs are for unidirectional information architectures: click on something, then click on something in that something, and so on, ever forward.

They almost always fail in some way upon use of the back-button (e.g. both Twitter and FB, among many others). The endless page pattern always either doesn't back-button to the right place or uses a smelly hack to re-paginate the endless page.
