I agree this would be ideal, but it's not technically possible. As I
said before, two modules cannot both "own" the same public url. If
you have a brilliant idea on how to implement this, I'm all ears.

You're preaching to the choir... no need to write many paragraphs
explaining why this is a desirable goal. :-) I just can't see how to
make it happen.
