I would also add that there's no significant visual difference between
app launchers and tasks which of course opens up a whole can of worms
with usability. NextStep at least had two different toolbars for
differentiating them but what we already have in windows and Gnome is
far clearer and better. 

I think its essential that we maintain a strong visual difference
between the two to avoid confusing users and for me the Looking Glass
way of displaying a minature copy of the running window as the icon for
the task is the best I have seen for that purpose.
