I must be really dumb but I don't understand how approach B is going to work. If axes ranges and data plots ranges are not normalized to screen coordinate scale, how are they going to show up on the normal scale with the axes? All my trial-and-error experience says it is not going to work. Or at least I'll say I don't know how to make it work without normalizing :-( Anyway, I meant to say a track of plot components will still be needed, IMHO, for zooming (so that all of them are expanded or contracted) or for adding and deleting components while preserving the scale, so that the one with the largest range fits into the window. For that, I used two Container objects - one for Plots, another for Axes. Then, its easy to scale the needed components. Maybe I am not fully plugged in on this, but I see but one general way of doing universal plot displaying (simple, not fly-through or something fancy).
