Right...  so it wouldn't be like `insert-file-contents', where you'd get
more stuff into a buffer already containing stuff.

The normal synchronous calling pattern would be

  (let ((info (url-fetch "http://google.com";)))
    ... do stuff))

while the async case would be

(url-fetch "http://google.com"; (lambda (info) ... do stuff))

Yeah, that looks nice to me.
