I've stumbled on this a couple weeks ago too but wasn't fully convinced.
The only argument that makes sense to me is if it can speed up the interactions with the site (at the cost of slowing down the first load :/) (ok, to be fair, maybe it also has potential for a richer user experience in the browser)
We could pretty easily implement an API for going headless. However we would need an "app" on the front end to use the API. This is a completely new area to explore.
Frameworks like bootstrap make it easy to quickly implement traditional web pages.
But to my knowledge there are no frameworks of the same caliber (I mean "very high level") for the "head app" development. Things like AngularJS are not as hight level as we'd like.
But again, I'm not deep enough in the concept to really know what I'm talking about here ;)
If you have any ideas about how to quickly put together a "head" to work with out "headless CMS implementation", I'm all ears!
