It would be more difficult to document such behavior than to implement it.

Didn't you cite some other package that wanted such a thing?

Yes, provided `split-window-preferred-function' then still wants such an
argument.  I'd simply check whether `split-window-preferred-window' is a
live window that can be split by `split-window-preferred-function'.  If
not, I'd proceed in the usual way.  Later on, we could allow as value of
`split-window-preferred-window' also a function that computes such a
window on-the-fly.
