What do you exactly mean with Continuous mode?  One big buffer, where
all images are shown each on its own line?  I think that would be nice

There's some "minor continuous mode", i.e. when you scroll with SPC and
DEL, you will finally switch pages and start at the beginning/end
respectively.  But still, there's only one image in the buffer.

Anyway, here you have a "go for it" from my side, too.  I think doc-view
is not too hard-wired to this "one page at a time" style, so it sounds
quite doable.
