They cascade the document tree as usual, just let the event object
contains a ref to the view the event came from for event handlers to
be able to do view specific stuff. (DOM manipulation couldn't be view
specific of course, but CSS manipulation could.) A more interesting
question is in the other direction - the style attribute for instance,
you'd have to be able to separate the different views in it somehow.

It's a similar issue, I think, to that of multiple controls on a
computer. You can connect as many mice as you like, but all of them
share the same pointer. But all that is really needed for enabling
dual mouse control (with separate pointers that is) is establishing
the infrastructure for multiple pointers, and I think dual mouse
control could be just as interesting as any multitouch interface I've
seen.


Anyway, it's just an idea I threw out, I don't expect to see it
actually happen. At least not for  long while...
