Btw: I think it would be great if UIMA did offer a mechanism that would
allow an AE to redefine the default view without external sofa mapping.

E.g. AE1 runs, creates a new view and wants that this view is subsequently
the default. It would call cas.setDefaultView("newView"). Then AE2 would
get that view as default, etc. 

It can be done using an external sofa-mapping, but the longer the cascade
gets, the more annoying it is to set up local and global names and to
make the mapping explicit.
