Is it possible to remove "Show Desktop" from the Alt+Tab application switcher?
It can be done!
I've uploaded a Unity build for 12.04 that fixes this (no Show Desktop in the Alt-Tab switcher).
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:izx/askubuntu -y sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install unity
How did you do it?
I modified the Unity Source. It consists of two steps:

For 13.04, to enable or disable the "Show desktop" option in application switcher you can use unity-tweak-tool
For 12.10, a new setting has been added to CCSM to enable or disable the "Show desktop" option in application switcher.
Run this command in a terminal to install CCSM:
Now open CCSM and go to Ubuntu Unity plugin.
Switch to Switcher tab. Then tick the check box next to Disable Show Desktop in the switcher option.
One option could be to revert back to the behavior of Alt+Tab prior to 11.10.
I realize that this is a bit drastic, but it might be better than nothing.
So, I'm not sure if this is of any help to you, however while using Unity 2D, sick of not having graphics drivers I dived into gnome fall-back. Then unsatisfied, I left back to the Unity interface. I no longer have the displayed "Show Desktop" in the ALT+TAB application switcher. I believe this to be a side effect of the Gnome interface having it set in the lower left hand corner, and when I switched back, I no longer had it. Seemed to work for me... worth a shot.
