I think a lot of people assume when they see the word "Activities" that
that is what we're trying to implement, and adjust their ideas about
gnome-shell accordingly. I've been thinking we should change the label
to "Overview".

That was not communicated well outside of the hackfest then. The wiki
has a lot of discussion of multiple workspaces, and never suggests that
the use of multiple workspaces was intended to be minimized. (I'd
assumed that the goal was to make it *easier* to use multiple
workspaces, as with the compiz cube, rather than to try to get rid of them.)
