It would be a nice addition to the lesson if it discussed how csurf integrates with a client side SPA using something like React.js since that is widely used and covered in the front-end courses. However, I realize that using a server side rendered ejs example is more brief and limits the course to Express. But it would be good to at least discuss this slightly different but common scenario briefly.
