was not possible' ??

That confuses me since [although I've never investigated deeply]
Chapter5.Text shows :-
... Display Root 
Figure 5.4	Example structure of the display space

And simplistically, <F9> clearly 'talks' to all viewers.

Aren't all viewers accessible from "Display Root" ?
Are the viewers also linked in the reverse direction - I guess not ?
Where am I misunderstanding this thread ?
