Since you can switch directly to the journal with the search key (and other shortcuts), it can get in the way when switching activities with alt-tab.
Summary of the opposing view:
Anti-skip: The journal MUST be visible below the central XO
# on first boot; and
# if no other activity is started?
As long as the Journal appears where it does and as it does, we need to continue to treat it as an activity. If another proposal arises which meaningfully differentiates the Journal in a manner consistent with the system and its use, we can reconsider how it's portrayed.
The journal gets in the way when switching activities and is already meaningfully different from other activities:
# it has its own key
# it has its own zoom level position in the frame (it always appears immediately to the right of the "Home" zoom level icon)
