You mean something like the NEC CRV43, or the Ostendo CRVD both were 43-inch curved LCDs..I don't think either necessarily let you break them into zones but with that wide of a setup you could run multiple windows side by side with ease.

That said, the biggest drivers by far for hooking up are 1) the relative low cost for really brilliant 21-24" monitors, and 2) the proliferation of smaller computing devices. 11-14" notebooks are great all-around companions, but you can't run two full-on applications on them without discomfort. And as we head to a ubiquitous net connection (though it won't be the always-connected nirvana we all hope for any time soon!), having our online world on one and local apps on another makes all kinds of sense. As long as we can concentrate on our work :-)
And, not unimportantly, phones are quickly heading to dock-and-go status (See Win 8 and Ubuntu 12.04; and you can bet the others are already all over this).
Because of these factors, I don't doubt we'll start seeing SuperLandscape monitors (Hey, I now own that term :-) very soon. I'd certainly rather have one uninterrupted view on one monitor vs. two.
