I probably still have no good understanding what precisely your
problem is with selecting the most recently selected window.  Can you
please elaborate once more?

C-x 3 C-x o C-x o C-x 2 C-x 0

What's the purpose of the 'other-buffer' calls if they don't express
the user's wish to "work" in these windows?

With "use" you mean choose for giving back the space of the deleted
window?  Then we should remember from which window Emacs obtained the
space when creating a new window and return that space when deleting
the new window, provided that old window still exists.
