Well, MVC on the web is severly limited anyway.
In real MVC apps, the view can listen to changes in the model, and has to, because there are often multiple views and controllers interacting with the model at once.
On the web, once you’ve rendered the view, it sits there dumbly in the user’s browser. (XMLHttpRequest does not significantly change this.) That makes the distinction between the model and the controller blurry and somewhat artificial.
Makeshifts last the longest.
