We already have such features, but they display the other file in
another buffer.   Why is it useful to put them in one buffer?

What does it look like, to have multiple files in one buffer?

One possibility, which may not be optimal but which does have 
the distinct advantage of already being implemented, is Magnar 
Sveen's multifiles.el[0] library, inspired by this[1] question.  

Incidentally, I've often wished for the inverse functionality, 
i.e. the ability to conveniently partition a file-visiting buffer into a 
set of indirect buffers, which could then have different major
modes, buffer-local variable values, minor modes, etc.  Maybe
someone will tell me that this, too, already exists :)
