I think this would be possible, but you would *still* want to do a "map" 
call anyway in order to see any new objects created on the server in the 
mean time. So my suggestion would be to do the "map" call as we have 
always done, but afterwards, if we find that some objects we still have 
in our local data set were not returned by the map call even though we 
expected them to, either immediately deduce that these must have been 
deleted on the server, or, more fail-safe, do a multi GET *only* for 
these objects in question to receive confirmation about their status.
