It's interesting the idea of having a "content" file that is shared by
different main documents.  I think that it's technically possible to
do what you're suggesting, but it would require some work and care.
The main problem I can see is: what to do when you issue C-c C-v in
the "content.tex"?  Both documents are opened?  E.g., Okular opens one
document at the time, that wouldn't work with this viewer.
