I had the same question. I think you will find the answer in this discussion:

This only seems to be a temporary state. If you quit the app you're back to square one - it will not relaunch in the same desktop so you have to go to mission control and reorganise again. In spaces on 10.6 one could assign apps to a certain space and they'd stay there.
It's the same with full screen apps. By default full screen apps get their own desktop but if you are in Safari (full screen) and open a new window it goes to a new desktop. This is extremly annoying.
Used to using command ~ to cycle through open app windows but this doesn't work when they're on separate desktops.

To me, 1 app to 1 desktop would mean that once an app is assigned to a particular desktop it has exclusive use of that desktop and no other app would open or be visible in that desktop.
Whilst I understand how to force an app to run in a particular desktop (assign app to desktop) I don't know how/if it is possible to remove/exclude all other apps from that desktop. Is it possible?
