What about an extra command line option -nolastview to suppress the 
default behaviour?

Or the following behaviour:
(no options): the original default behaviour
-lastview : the last view is used only
-markedviews: the marked views are used only; if a page has no marked 
view, it is suppressed
-lastview -markedviews: the marked views are used; if a page has no 
marked view, the last view is used.
(or, as alternative for the last: -markedviewsorlastview)

(btw, I don't use this functionality so see this only as a suggestion, 
not as a personal wish)
