I think Tabbed MDI is much more userfriendly, where one can very easily Ctrl-Tab between several open databases, and also arrange to see more than one open databases at the same time. I understand that MDI may add more challenges to the programmings with threading etc., but I would consider it well worth it.
You can assign Ctrl+Tab to Window | Next Database to use that shortcut to switch between multiple databases instead of tabs within a database (Tools | Customize | Keyboard).

You can see more than one database at the same time by setting 'Tools | Options | General | Windows taskbar entries' to 'Always one for each open database', restarting UR, then positioning each database window as desired.
