I was talking of modes that maintain a list of *overlays*, not
windows, but this other point, though not mine, is also valid :)

But overlays are bound to buffers AFAIK. I can not see there are any problems with buffers here. Or am I missing something?

Is not the only binding from overlays to windows the 'window property that can be set for some overlays.

All in all, I think all this is complicated stuff for something that
would perhaps be easier at the C level, without the need to delete and
recreate windows.

I am not sure if it is very easy at the C level, but it would be good to have primitives for handling cases like this there.
