    initial v1  
    55A backwards-panel-like custom section and custom js-templated controls integrate with the existing themes API and CSS to bring the themes.php experience into the Customizer, entirely with the 4.1 Customizer API. Theme-switching is implemented simply by reloading the Customizer to preview a different theme, with the existing AYS confirmation preventing users from losing their changes. If the Customizer Transactions API makes it into 4.2, theme switching could be enhanced by the addition of the ability to persist customizations across Customizer reloads and theme switches, per @westonruter's explanation above. In the future, when the Customizer API has evolved sufficiently, we can remove the customizer-reload requirement, but there's no need to wait for that functionality to implement the very usable UI.

    7 I'm closing this ticket in favor of proposing the [https://wordpress.org/plugins/customizer-theme-switcher/ Customizer Theme Switcher plugin] for core merge in 4.2. There are some good UX thoughts here, and they are taken into consideration with my post from last summer in the plugin's implementation. Now that the basic functionality is in place in the plugin, I'd like help evaluating the user experience and making iterative improvements. I'll be around in #core-customize on Slack and would like to continue work & feedback on the plugin there for the next couple of days before the feature-plugin meeting this Tuesday.
