I’m for the concept of secondary glazing behind historic sash windows in principle. It would have been something worthy of mass promotion here 25 years ago – before the plague! But it’s too late now.

It just looks terribly conspicuous in those two examples you’ve given. If it can be done discreetly, the internal – and to a lesser extent external – visual damage to the window and its casing is a small enough price to pay relative to complete loss of historc window fabric with PVC or poorly-detailed double-glazed sash replacement.
