[Arp] Accessing views from other views

I guess it's not really that bad, there are just a lot of view events.
I guess I'm not sure if some of them are really view events or should be
sent to a controller.
For instance, imagine you are viewing some content, and you want to zoom or
rotate it. It's not affecting the model at all, so I'm handling all that in
the view without delegating to the controller. It would seem a waste to send
it to the controller just to have the controller send it back to the view.
It just seems like the view is doing a whole lot more work than it seems a
view should do. My concept of a view is that is just sends events to the
controller and observes the model. But I'm still learning this mvc stuff. ;)
