Hello UG:

I stumbled across another method [applicable with V6] with apparently
less overhead compared to the earlier provided solution. This is:

g3D = Plot3D[Sin[x*y], {x, 0, Pi}, {y, 0, Pi}]

g2D = GraphicsGrid[{List@g3D}]

g2D // Head

This method seems to leave the front-end confused. It still gives the
rotate cursor and indeed lets you rotate the graphic, but it
apparently cannot be resized.

So maybe this method is problematic, but it did allow me to combine
the 2D version with some 2D primitives for annotation [which was my
original goal].
