Many (most?) times it is an option, but just occasionally it has
flashing graphics, or white text on black background, or it simply
annoys you.  I'm not trying to stretch credibility too far, just
pointing out that you can either leave it in the stack or move it to
another workspace (which kind of breaks the workspace per task idea) but
not just "hide" it on the current workspace.

That simply had not occurred to me!  It is a bit of a mindset change
from "hide the window I'm working on" to "hide my desktop entirely" but
it certainly works (although I find a bit cumbersome by mouse alone).
Worth noting that it doesn't fit the hide-from-boss criteria as you are
left with a blank workspace ;-)
