I can understand worrying about the added javascript. I can understand 
thinking that jQuery is actually overkill, that this could be done with 
less javascript. However, I have no problem pushing people to a specific 
javascript framework. We push people to use PHP, we push them to use 
mod_rewrite, etc. At some point the team will probably HAVE to make a 
call and back a specific javascript framework. Now is as good of a time 
as any (in my opinion). I don't care what they choose either, although 
you can almost guarantee it'll be jQuery since that's what they went for 
with the admin section.
