It's when you run into issues with applications that want to have something like a animated menu or whatever that takes 100 redraws to go from start to finish.
So it's just bad application design, then. Or if you really want fancy animations, you do as I suggested: Let the server do the fancy effects. The client sends a little bit of information specifying how to do the animation (start, number of steps, time increment, etc.) and the server handles it. Augmenting X or something similar to do that wouldn't be too hard.
Somewhat off-topic: The contraction of "you are" is "you're", not "your". Sorry... just a pet peeve...
