You'll still have the possibility of getting out of sync with multiple tabs/windows, but at least in that case, a single action/request should be able to sync you back up.

Sounds like you don't want to be turning a stateless platform (HTTP) into a stateful one. No matter how you concieve of it you're going to have to a) maintain synchrony and b) run into headaches (see (a) for more information.)
You can monitor the fields and data to ensure that all changes on the client side have been submitted before the browser changes pages, a la gmail, but even this will not ensure that you will stay in synch.
For instance, how do you plan on handling people having multiple tabs open? Comet push?
Real sticky wicket.
