 As noted there: now when you make a change to a `theme_mod` in theme A
 (like change background color to red) and then switch to another theme B
 and activate it instead, the next time you open theme A in the customizer
 for live preview the changes you made previously will be applied as your
 customizer state (the color will be background color will be red again).
 This is implementing [https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/core-

 > With this feature I would strongly encourage thinking in terms of user
 > For example, "As a user, when I am live previewing and making changes to
 the twentyseventeen theme and then switch to live previewing the twentyten
 theme, I expect the customizations I made to twentyseventeen to be there
 the next time I live preview it"
