If you note the /ajax/, I think it's pretty clear that the intent is for
the browser to invoke java script which downloads the contents as XML,
extracts it with JavaScript to convert it into pretty DHTML probably
using the DOM API.

A user would not look at /ajax/ directly. Only the JavaScript on the
page would pull open that .xml and unpack it as DHTML.

Cheers,
