Hi JD,
You didn't miss anything - the ribbackbone command always affects the  
entire model (which I agree can be inconvenient).

It is a whole-model setting that can also be changed in the molecule  
model attributes panel (opened by choosing "attributes..." from the  
Model Panel).

You might be able to get what you want by opening the structure twice  
and showing ribbon for one copy and backbone atoms for the other copy.
