From the reading through the framework that I've done trying to do a similar thing I think what you're looking for is fulfilled by the Zone Workspace...

You can do that, but I would make sure that you absolutely need that type of functionality before hand because it'll add a lot of layers to your application.

Zoneworkspace requires that you use the ZoneSmaratPartInfo when you show the view on the workspace. You have to drop panels onto the zoneworkspace and set the ZoneName property on the panel that shows up, which correlates to the zonesmartpartinfo.

As for the deckworkspace, layers will add a bit of overhead when loading, especially if you have transparency turned on. You also have to keep track of which workspace you want to run to in the workitems. If these things are fine for you, then you can create the deckworkspace on the shell and then create a deckworkspace on a View. Then you can run other views to that deckworkspace as needed.
