I'd like to see the TApplication.MainFormOnTaskbar property go away completely. It is a big hack that introduces subtle issues that sometimes have to be disabled.  Every since its introduction, it hasn't quite worked right.  I think it should be replaced with a new TForm.ShowOnTaskbar property instead, and then have it enabled for the MainForm by default.  It is not uncommon to want multiple forms to have their own taskbar buttons, and it would clean up TForm's internal coding since the MainForm would not have to be handled differently from other forms anymore.
