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.
