The issue with this is that we've struggled to find any situations
where there genuinely are multiple modes being rendered
simultaneously, the print preview in IE doesn't (the afterprint
returns immediately and there are no screen updates during the
intermediate times)  So I think we should avoid anything that actually
considers different views being considered available simultaneously,
it's a red herring without implementations, so we can ignore it :-)
