the 2 paragraphs you quoted end the say way, but are different in
getting there.. but fine..

EXACTLY EXACTLY! so all screens should be getting the ui area for
their internal viewports right? which means having to decide weather
to get the one from the setting, or the one from the sbs, or some
mishmash of both is dangerous, bad and unpredictable... whereas if
they always return the one from the setting (which we make sure is
always there) then there is no issue... therefore the %Vi tag is
redundant!
