Live preview for all windows in alt-tab display?

Hi, folks. Just subscribing to this list to follow Shell stuff. I wanted
to ask about this on the list rather than file a bug report, as I'm sure
it must have been covered before, but couldn't find anything.

As the GNOME Shell cheat sheet says:

"Alt+Tab switches between windows. The windows are grouped by
application and the previews of the applications with multiple windows
are available as you click through...Previews of applications with a
single window are only available when the Down arrow is explicitly hit."

But...why? Is there any reason to show just static icons of apps with
only a single window open on the alt-tab list? I'd find a live preview
of every application, no matter how many windows it has open, much more
useful. This was one of the things I liked about Compiz, when I used it.
I tended to use it as an easy way to see if a console operation had
finished, or if anyone had said something in a given IRC channel, etc -
just have a quick look through the alt-tab list, then back to what I was
