Yes, as far as you can or as far as you want to avoid unnecessary 
complication, for example projet [1] is loading quite a lot of things 
using xhr and scripts (which are loading others), the priority was to 
load the user interface as fast as possible (offline feature, etc), then 
most of the loadings are async but the sync xhr could not be avoided 
(easy way sometimes but as far as I remember not using it could lead to 
situations that looked unresolvable)

Do we have a survey of the use of sync against async ? I think it would 
show that sync is much more used (wrongly or easy way again, but...). 
The possibility to have a sync xhr remains usefull, but I see that I 
will be opposed strong arguments (could not find previous discussions 
about it).

If not possible, could we have at least a,callback), 
as simple as just loading the url content and not caring about what is 
inside ? So we have an alternative to creating globals or linking to globals
