The use case where I see this the most is when I want to open the "Spaces" app from Spotlight. I would love to minimize the keys it takes to do this, but because other application exist with similar name (Disk Space Cleanup Management) I need to type Spaces all the way out before it shows up in the result set.

It is the only application that I launch from Spotlight that starts with "S" but Spotlight seems unable to learn this. Any way to prevent other apps from getting top billing (System Preferences, Spider, Spin Control...)

In your specific case for Spaces, have you tried assigning a keybind to spaces? You could activate it without having to use spotlight at all. – Darth Android Jun 22 '11 at 17:23
