Some of the newer tools redraw the vuports in their own colors. While this is usually neutral to working, I think avoiding this would be preferable.

For instance, I was trying to use a Weight Map solely to indicate visually what point I wanted a chunk of geometry to align to, amongst many similar points. But since ALIGN redraws the vuport in its own colors, the Weight Shade-ing is over-ridden while the tool is active, and I didn't have any good landmarks to place the selected geometry.

Allowing vuports to retain their user-selected display modes is, I believe, generally desirable and obviates the need for any temporary work-arounds to indicate specific locations.
