We could add some sort of per-app setting again, though it wouldn't
work quite the same, apps in different desktops are a lot more
isolated now. But if the only use for it is to work around managed
mode bugs then it's probably not worth it, better to spend time fixing
the real problem.

No, that's no longer supported. It shouldn't be too hard to add it
back if you want it.
