Here's an idea. Lets keep the current doc team definition of the Desktop
as is (ie. The collection of all apps that make the desktop environment)
and use the term Workspace to describe "the surface behind the icons and
panels." This is even already somewhat consistent as in the "workspace"
switcher, the user can create new "workspaces." What do you think?
