If I press a button which says "Show Something", then I have every expectation 
that what I am presented with is indeed "Something". If the Show Desktop Button 
were to be true to the Nautilus definition of "desktop", then the result of 
pressing Show Desktop would be background + icons. A button called "Show 
Desktop" which shows users background + icons + panels will train users into 
believing that that package is indeed the desktop.
