Bug Description

It has become an intuitive principle, in User interface design, that if you right-click on something, you get an (contextual) list of ALL that can be done to that thing that you've clicked on.

However, when you right-click on a task (on the unity task-bar), it doesn't provide window-management options such as "Minimize". It shows "Lock to Lancher" and "Quit", but why not "Minimize" and other arrangement-oriented options that can be done to any task's window?
