I don't doubt that making all these shared contexts swapped in and out along with the rest of what the WIMP does will improve maters; but it's a hell of a lot of work, and in some cases requires API redesigns, meaning existing apps can't make use of the new functionality. Additionally, I bet there are a fair few apps out there that /rely/ on the shared contexts.
