Semantic Zoom

Was anyone else hoping for a semantic zoom type feature to be employed for WP8? I feel like the Start Screen and App List would work well together when zoomed out. And maybe even having multitasking apps shown along side the two. Think of it as having the "multitasking" in WP7 adopted in WP8, but embedded in to the start screen semantic zoom profile.

*sigh* I know there is speculation on features being held out of the SDK that Microsoft has yet to detail, but I have my doubts!
