Yes, of course it would be one more way to accomplish a task that one
can do otherwise. I know this feature from other WMs (fluxbox, wmaker,
beryl) and did it that way there, so I missed this feature in OB3
initially, but in fact it is even more useful/quicker to define some
shortcuts to send windows to other desktops (e.g. W-A-F5 to send it to
Desktop 5). Nevertheless it might be a feature wanted by some people
and it could be customizable :)

I agree that other features are far more important, so don't think
about this too much ;-)
