    And the ?window? overlay property can allow the overlays for the
    different windows to be completely independent of each other.  There
    could be two overlays for a given line and only one would be displayed
    in each window.

It could be used for that, in another feature where that was needed.
However, each line's number is the same in all windows, so linum
doesn't need to do this.

    Like next-single-property-change except for overlays instead of text

The same basic idea, yes, but a different interface might be more
suitable here.

    But maybe Richard was rather thinking about a more discriminative form
    of overlays-at.

Rather, a more discriminative form of overlays-in.
