Nice work on releasing Beta3.
in quotes because the term is open to interpretation.)
By the way, this query is unrelated to use of AJAX techniques. I'm referring to things like Sorting and Paging in GridViews.

Your question is a good one. You are not alone. I share this concern. And I've been contacted (months ago) by another member of the community who expressed similar sentiments.
It's definitely something I'd like to pursue in the future but I must admit that it isn't actually scheduled work that's "on my plate."
Perhaps you and I could brainstorm here about how the adapters could be modified to handle the NOSCRIPT case better.

I haven't had time to look at this in too much detail. Feel free to point out gaps in the logic.
From my understanding, taking the GridView Sorting and Paging as an example:
To implement a NOSCRIPT GridView:
Typically, this means SUBMIT buttons, with values (and/or Ids) that indicate the desired operation.
This operation could be performed by a Control Adapter.
b) the PostBack handling would need to be modified, to correctly extract the desired operation from the SUBMIT button's value/Id.
This operation would probably be performed by a GridView-derived server control.
As such, it seems that the overall NOSCRIPT behaviour could end up being distributed across (at least) two classes - the Control Adapter and the GridView-derived class. The Render operation could be implemented in the GridView-derived class, for modularity.
Just a braindump at the moment - no major breakthroughs.
