However, perhaps both of these things are unnecessary - the stacks could just as well communicate by sharing a common library.

I don’t think the communication is necessary as we can communicate in the same ways we currently do between stacks. Some stack object coordinate -> coordinate system it is presented in translation would probably already be helpful.

That’s what I mean and if you present it somewhere else (different window or view) then it moves and the previous view is emptied. If you want two instances you clone the stack.
