I actually think it's a pretty good idea because of the way we are getting used to tabbed interfaces these days. I would prefer the tabbed interface over the workspace applets we now have, because of the possibility to name the tabs to the activity/project.
However, I guess GS has already too much progressed towards the idea of the overlay that this sadly wont get done or accepted.

It's not that it's not a good idea, it's just not what Gnome Shell is
trying to achieve (focusing on documents + tasks/activities, rather
than applications), as I see it.
Nevertheless, you could try implementing it as an extension, given
some expected work to make the panel extensible and to add an useful
API for extension developers.
