I imagined what I suggest as an option, that you can enable or disable. If you want to use the desktop only, you can
To answers to your questions :
1 - I don't see what you can do an the desktop, except a right-click ... And I don't have any icons on my desktop, just the trash.
So, is for that I suggest that, it's because I don't use my deskop at all and I want to use ModernUI, but with a start menu. For who want to do the same, it's could be a very usefull option.
2 - I don't think that would look terrible, as you said, at last personaly. And for the translucency, I don't know of it's hard to implements :/
3 - Why not completly disabled top and bottom left corners, they will be useless finally !
Voila ! As I said, it's just some ideas I got, and it's can be improve. Tell me what you think of that
