Me also, and this is exactly what I have, 4 folders in the tray with my everyday apps in them, everything else from Page 2 onwards. I starting doing this last year with iOS7, so it's certainly not new in 8 and likely has been around for longer as you say. It's nothing to do with minimalism, I like to look at the wallpaper I chose when I unlock my phone, and I change it a lot. It's like having a picture of your kids in your wallet, sort of thing.
