[Freeswitch-users] Incorrect method of PHP call control?

Hi. Before I go to far down this path, I wonder if what I intend to do  
is not a good practice.

I started using mod_xml_curl to use PHP on localhost to generate a  
dialplan dynamically, based on the Caller-Destination-Number variable  
that is posted. It prints out the XML that calls the javascript that  
then controls the call. For example,

$response = <<< XML
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<document type="freeswitch/xml">
   <section name="dialplan" description="example_curl_dialplan">
     <context name="public">
       <extension name="curl_test">
         <condition field="destination_number" expression="^(\+1|1?) 
           <action application="javascript" data="demos/stest-examp- 
st.js" />

Then I thought, that's silly to go back out to javascript to handle  
the actions, playing files, using pocketsphinx, etc. I should just  
stay in PHP, using esl.php to answer and handle the call.

Then I rethought, is that a good practice to take over the call  
control from freeswitch at that point, while it is in the xml-curl  
dialplan hunt?

Then I also thought, is it even possible to do some of the things I  
need to do from the php esl, like the equivalent of this javascript:
session.collectInput(onInputsml, "emptyobject", 7000);
