it is unusual, which is why we figured we'd ask first :)

places that do this currently: the pager, the taskbar for multiple window 
thumbnails in a single mouse over popup.

we're also working towards an overview mode that let's one associate 
Activities in Nepomuk with both Plasma Containments ("Activities") and windows 
and such an overview in Plasma would benefit from showing window thumbnails as 

so it's not common and is indeed unusual. it's something that only desktop 
shell type apps are likely to use.
