Yes you are, I think.  You can label each desk, you can't label each page.
Using multiple desks helps organize your system.  In my labels for each
desk I also give the key binding that will take you to that desk.

Have a look at it:

I've got mine organized as:

Network Administration
AfterStep Configuration
Linux System Administration
Work area
Help apps, tkman, FAQs, Docs...
Search results
Web Browsing
Web Shopping
Mail and IRC
Tcl development
Games, of course
File management
