I don't believe anyone needs minimizing. Why are you minimizing windows? Windows can go to the back of the stack - where they interfere with nothing - or be dumped on another workspace. I don't see any reason to have an invisible application running. That sounds like it should be reimplemented as a session service.

And it doesn't, But if you want to do fast window management you can. If you choose not too...

Which seems reasonable. Although you can already manage windows multiple ways, tweak settings with tweak tool, or install extensions that can reimplement all kinds of things.
