Picture-In-Picture Viewfinder for Nikon?

Nikon has filed for a patent that allows a "picture-in-picture" viewfinder - in the diagrams with the filing, the viewfinder would be able to show a digital wide-angle view using a CCD or CMOS with the center section showing the actual view based on the current focal length in use. Like many patents, this may or may not ever come to fruition, but it's certainly an appealing concept to sports and action shooters. (Via Gizmodo)
