    > 1. What is a workspace?

    You can look at it as "a set of windows" with the ability to switch between
    those sets.

I'd heard the term "virtual desktop" but not the term "workspace" for
this.

Many programs have specific terminology.  It would be useful for
people reporting bugs that involve programs other than Emacs to keep
in mind that the rest of us may not be familiar with those programs
and may not know their special terminology.

    Maybe what Emacs should do is to unmap any currently displayed menus
    whenever the Emacs frame is unmapped.

That could be a reasonable approach (if someone knows how to implement
it).  However, if what most apps do is grab and prevent the
workspace-switching commands from working, probably Emacs should do the
same thing, for consistency's sake.
