The rationale for recent documents is that it moves the interface

I fully agree with this. I think the desktop as a whole should be
'object-oriented' rather than 'process-oriented' (not speaking about the
programming here, that is irrelevant to the user). He/she just knows
that clicking on a document allows him to edit it again.

And you create a new document quickly with your most commonly used
applications how (seeing as the usability team has also decided that an
easy-to-use favorites menu is also out of bounds?)

Well if you buy the OO approach, there would be a mechanism to create
a new <foo> document (or any other object) independant of having to
launch (from a user model perspective) the application.
