I'd handle this with a 3rd view, which just delegates to the 2nd view, then the 1st if the newer view doesn't like it..

This separates the 'do I call a view at all' logic - which you're happy with Catalyst's handling of, from the 'which of my views do I delegate to from _this request_' handling - which needs to be your own logic..
