The feasibility of this would depend on how the Activity assignment is
(re?)done, IMO. For example, in the KWin Activities menu, you have to
perform each (de)assignment individually, which - with this proposal -
could result in accidentally "disappearing" an application that you
were going to pin to a running activity as well.
