That's what indirect buffers do. Maybe the indirect buffer
functionality could be beefed up to support what you want?

But in all other respects, the indirect buffer and its base buffer are completely separate. They can have different names, different values of point, different narrowing, different markers, different major modes, and different local variables.
Awesome! Looks like we have some solid rails to drive on.
BTW what's the purpose of lentic-mode then? To be "providing multiple persistent views"?
