I don't think you're right here.  Looking at Firefox, for instance, tabs
there don't correspond to Emacs windows at all.  Each Firefox window has
a tab-bar that switch between several tabs, just as each Emacs window
can switch between several buffers.

If each tab-bar has the same set of tabs there would be no problem in
viewing the same tab (= buffer) in multiple windows.

Of course, Emacs doesn't have tab-bars.  So I agree, buffers aren't tabs.
