I would rather see a more integrated approach, like clutter based widgets. 
(see also the flickr example app those guys made).

Applications are usually fullscreen on a PDA/phone, which makes a window 
manager (and effects on that level) much less prominent. However, it would be 
useful for alpha blended menus and dialog screens, and an Expose-like 
taskswitcher would be great of course!
