Default touch screen edge gestures

now that we have touch screen edge swipe gesture support both on X11 and
Wayland we could define which actions to put on each edge.
My suggestion would be to put a sensible action on each of the four
Window Switching as the default alt+tab theme is on the left side. Also
on Windows 10 this happens on the left edge.
Present Windows as 4 finger swipe downwards on touchpad triggers present
Desktop Grid as 4 finger swipe upwards on touchpad triggers desktop
What I dislike about the proposal is: Present Windows and Alt+Tab are
kind of redundant. Given that a better default edge would be nice for
top edge. KRunner would be a nice fit as it's also on top, but it's
rather useless on touch.
The application launcher is rather disconnected in the default setup if
we swipe in from left screen. What I personally would prefer if we could
trigger the application dashboard. Of course we still don't have working
touch support in the application launchers, so if we go for that we need
fixing (same applies for alt+tab btw.).
So please comment and propose your own ideas.
