Single page web apps are broken for a lot of the most important purposes that the worlds largest and most important web-apps need to fulfill. For example how could Wikipedia function as a single page app since it wouldn't be consumable by screen readers and robots of various shapes and sizes ? That's just one example, but there are many. What about the semantic web ? microformats anyone ?

Google isn't the only search engine out there so the fact that you can use a crutch to let google crawl your site doesn't fix the problem.
