Is this #6251? That's the only trac that I see that makes sense here.
My 2c. Leave the Journal in the alt-tab ring. It's an activity. It just happens to be an activity that's always running. Think of the Finder on MacOS as a parallel example. Making it a special case that you have to use a special key to get to is more confusing than leaving it on the ring.
Continuing down that path, I think that the launcher pane should be treated more as just another activity, and also be on the alt-tab ring. Maybe it should also have an icon on the frame.
