Exactly so. Still, it requires a non-static web server.

Also, with a push model, it's more difficult for the client to determine 
whether the server is current. In a pull model, the client can look at 
the last synchronization timestamp, and determine whether that's good 

Of course, if you trust that the push actually works, you could fake the 
synchronization timestamp if no sync operation is going on.
