Workspace switcher should disappear when Expo plugin is missing

Bug Description

On my desktop I disabled the Expo plugin. Yet, the workspace switcher icon is still present on the dock. Nothing happens if I click on it and there's no obvious way to remove it.

It would be good if Unity could detect that Expo is disabled and hide the workspace switcher (or, even better, if the switcher could be turned on and off independently--for people who want to use Expo only the keyboard shortcut).

Expo is now a requirement so it cannot be removed. Closing.
