scope:// url dispatching does not correctly work if a non favorite scope is shown

Bug Description

When the currently active scope is not marked as a favourite it is not
possible to switch to a different scope (e.g scope://clickscope) with the
URL dispatcher. It just seems to be ignored.

-> Amazon scope is not in favourites and visible
-> run "url-dispatcher scope://clickscope" from the shell
-> it will be ignored.

Confirmed, we only talk to the current scope in dash, not to any of {non-fav scope, overview, non-fav over overview}, which we should.

This will be somewhat easier with scopes-as-apps, since every app will have its own .url-dispatcher file, and there will only be one scope UI per app, no more scope-over-scope, no more overview/manage etc.
