Well I don't know what so cool about multi-touch screen on a phone unless for scaling images and webpages. So maybe just implementing a gesture to do that function, no need for a full blown implementation of a multi-touch support. unless i'm not getting something...

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!
