Word X: More on the ruler

Why is it that, when viewing a Word document in split view (two different views of the same document in the same window, using the split bar), using the “Ruler” command in the “View” menu causes the ruler to appear/disappear in both view panes at the same time?

This makes no sense. The very purpose of splitting the window in two is to have two different views. All “View” menu commands should apply to the currently active pane only.

(And I will not even mention what happens when you put one pane in Page Layout view mode and leave the other one in Normal view mode and try to change the zoom settings…)
