It is crazy that when in workspace 3, I open a terminal - hoping to have a terminal dedicated to the tasks of workspace 3 - I am transported back to the terminal in workspace 1.
This is wrong! It violates the integrity of the 'workspace'.
I've been using Linux for fifteen+ years and always a 'workspace' has been the functional equivalent of a virtual desktop. We should be able to assign workspace-specific wallpapers, even.
Just adding my vote to the count for static workspaces. It would be great to create a new workspace when I want to, but I don't need one created when I don't want to. Particularly when it doesn't behave like a real workspace at all.
I suspect that the designers did not understand workspaces and how people use them. That's ok. But if you don't get it, don't mess with it.

The point is there are many different use cases out there encouraged by OS X, Gnome 2, KDE, Xfce, etc, so when people see GNOME 3 or Cinnamon couldn't do a 2D workspace grid, they will just leave without saying a thing. After all GNOME 3 sucks on many many other aspects, and Cinnamon is so new.
