Holes in Spaces

I agree with these, from an article named "Holes in Spaces":

  • You explicitely ask for a different desktop: using one of the keyboard shortcuts or using the F8 Exposé-like mode.
  • You switch to an application that you have chosen to attach to a specific desktop (e.g. you might want all you Mail stuff to stay in Desktop 3).
  • You explicitely select a particular window situated in a different desktop, for example if you select that window in the Windows menu, or open the corresponding document from the Finder.

Of course, I'd have to add to the list a clarification that actions like the automatic closing of a sheet should not take you back to another space, too.
