If you don't mind a restriction (don't know how big?) on what browsers
you can use the easiest way to do this is with <iframe>.  Each iframe
becomes a separate request back to Cocoon (and can have it's own model).
You can use this to implement "popup" widgets that don't require a
separate window if you're willing to use JavaScript.  For compatibility
you can then fall back to new windows for browsers that don't support
iframe.  But for any of this to work I think you need JavaScript?

We also use iframes to support types of composition of widgets, in
particular, forms within forms...
