In Section 2 - Desktop Areas as opposed to multiple desktops, the spec
seems to imply that the current active area is measured in whole
screen size units.  Does this prohibit setting the viewport to a
position that straddles several whole window sized areas?  I would
hope that this is not the case, but that's how the spec reads.

This doesn't seem like it would fall into the "exciting new features"
category, since several current WMs already offer such a feature.
