You mean that when the window-local buffer-list is not empty these calls
should be allowed to choose a visible buffer?  What if an application
wants to specify for a specific call that `other-buffer' does not return
a visible buffer?

We'd change the behavior for people used to see the same buffer in two
windows simultaneously only for the short period when they've split a
window and have not yet shown the wanted buffer in it.
