I don't know if this was discussed already, I understand that the developers are busy, and so we "users" are also busy.  But I will try to voice my concern over the APPLICATION menu(or whatever it is).
With the current build, the icon-based APPLICATION is pretty useless to me. Unless you are familiar with the image/icon (of your app) and can memorize the "keyword" of what application (using search) it becomes more difficult to find the app especially when you have tons of applications buried inside.

I had a similar problem until I adapted my workflow. Now I only have as
many workspaces open as I need at any given time. If I'm about to start
a new task, I open another workspace. (Note, if you drag an application
icon to the add workspace button in the Activities Overview that
application will open on a new workspace.)

It's true that workspaces can't be rearranged (that would be sweet), but
shuffling applications from one workspace to another isn't that hard or
time consuming if you really care about their order.
