Do we need MVC on the Server when Google indexes JavaScript?

Google processes JavaScript. As Adam Audette put it "It should be noted that this type of functionality by Google explains how sites built using the AngularJS framework and the HTML5 History API (pushState) can be rendered and indexed by Google, ranking as well as conventional static HTML pages.". 

Why is this important? ASP.net WebForms is dead, and with Googles improvements ASP.net MVC may become unimportant. My 2cents on this...

Module Development in DNN 8: 3 - Introduction to SPA modules

In addition to ASP.NET MVC modules, DNN 8 will support SPA (Single Page Application) modules, developed purely with HTML JavaScript and Css, together with ASP.NET Web API based Web Services on the Web Server.  DNN currently supports this module type – to a degree - but the HTML is required to be in the WebForms User Control.  A number of the newer modules have been built this way, for example the Core Messaging module and Membership modules found in the User Profile are built in this way.

In DNN 8 the requirement to use User Controls or a Razor script is removed.  Module Controls can be pure HTML files with the extension .html or .htm, and the Module injection framework will load the html into an HtmlHostControl in a similar way to how MVC modules are handled.
