Default Suggestion for Multi-Window

I love the new ideas for MW. I have a suggestion, if you swipe up (or left in portrait) the bottom app replaces the top one and left or right would remove it from the stack. It would be consistent with the card ui. Also I'm a fan of halo as a notification manager, but I don't like the floating window for multi-tasking. Would it be difficult to open the notification in multi-window instead?

Also instead of long pressing on the recent app to add an app to the split screen, maybe a small app that is essentially just an app drawer would be a smoother alternative.

1- navigation bar multiwindow button (to be long pressed)
2- all apps displayed in two split screens
3- clicked app opens on the respective side of the screen.

Earlier i has designed the multi window button in the top left side of the "recent apps"screen. but that increases the number of click. I thought multi window should be fast and seamless.

That's why I would make an app drawer. it would be one click and the first app in the stack could be used to launch any others. Plus it can be launched with a quick gesture in most launchers
