Just some food for thought here... 

aparently IE 5.5 and above  has an algorithm  to decide if a new window 
should be started within a new process or within the current one, which is 
nice for stability. (http://mpt.phrasewise.com/2003/03/25) I guess in theory 
we could extend this to the bm and history windows and use some IPC to make 
sure everything works nice together. way future though :)
