Still I'm looking forward for something like PaperWM to be possible in KDE - or even to write it by myself

I have noticed in one of your comments in this thread that you are looking for novel ideas of the UI look. As others commenters stated, you might be interested in tiling window managers like i3  or sway . They are truly a gem for productivity and sometimes for an eye .
However, I love the concept of scrollable window manager like PaperWM  is. When I had a smaller screen (24" 16:9) I was complaining a lot on unused space on my screen. With PaperWM I was finally happy with its dimensions, because I could have huge IDE on the left and small part of terminal displayed on the right. That way I knew if something was printed to terminal, while my editor took 80% of the screen.

I presumes this is probably out of the scope, but curious if there's interest to implement tiled scrolling behavior (https://github.com/paperwm/paperwm). I liked paperwm a lot, but couldn't find anything similar on Windows or else.
Cardboard; a scrollable tiling window manager

This is reminiscent of Gnome's PaperWM . Not a Gnome user and just had the chance to try it for less than an hour, but the experience in my head sounded better than it was in reality - though was more of 'unexpected behavior' things than faults in the concept.
I think this approach tries to solve the 'cramming too much windows in a single virtual desktop' that sometimes can be felt with tiling WMs. For example, when I'm drawing something in Krita I'd want to see some references of what I'm drawing - I'd just scroll a bit to unveil an adjacent Falkon window to browse some images on the internet, do some strokes and scroll back to Krita's window - without having to resize it in half.

What's your favorite less known Gnome extension?

Sorry, I should have explained more. It's not on the regular site, so you have to install from https://github.com/paperwm/PaperWM. It treats each desktop as an infinite horizontal scroll of windows, and automatically tiles them as such. Keyboard shortcuts can manipulate width and height, stack and unstack, move windows left and right or up and down, move windows between workspaces or monitors. Support in GNOME 40+ is still being worked on, and I'm not sure of the status, but it works great on 3.38.
Introducing River, a Dynamic Tiling Wayland Compositor

Would it be possible to use the 'layout generator' functionality to create scrolling workspaces in the style of PaperWM or cardboard? Where rather than tiling the traditional way into the space available on the monitor, windows are tiled next to each other in columns on an essentially infinitely wide workspace and scrolled to bring the focused window onto the monitor.
I ended liking GNOME with the loss of one hand

I can not have any sympathy for Gnome as long as it keeps breaking extensions and any other form of customization.
Pure Gnome is not great for me. Gnome could be, but if any fix I apply will inevitably break, it simply isn't something I want to spend time on.
I am very interested in something like Material Shell (1) or PaperWM (2) both inspired by 10gui (3), but if the Gnome foundation layer will keep shaking anything above itself, I just do not want to bother with it.
