Undo gets fuzzy when it applies to navigation as well as transactions.

Picture an undo that works that way when you have 10 word processing 
documents open in a tabbed display - does undo switch tabs back for you 
as well as undo-ing text changes?

Should the 'back' button apply to your edits in a textbox?
