  Let me chime in. I love spatial mode. Because every folder has its
place and size. I know that when I open my Movies folder it will appear
in upper-left part of screen. When I open my NAS share, it will open at
the bottom. When I open my PDF dir it will be at the right place on
screen, and will be scrolled down to position when I finished last time.
When I open my photos folder, it will have List View activated. That's
what spatial is about -- keepin each folder size and position.

  The second part of your question is pure FUD. When I open new window
and don't want parent directory open, I just open with middle button.
Some people prefer Shift+click in this situation. I never has to use
"Close all parent folder" (ctrl-shift-w), but I aware it exist.
  And my middle button is between left and right button. On my laptop.
