Unnecessary screen refreshes should not be done. Nobody needs a dash, a workspace switcher and expose when they just want to start an app.

I sometimes use overview mode, sometimes ALT-F2.

The different screen is to avoid any distractions. It focusses you on what you're currently doing (current application). I understand that for you the reasoning behind the way GNOME works is not what you like. But that is why there are multiple desktops and also why there are extensions in GNOME.
