As much as I like multitasking gestures , they are creating problems in certain games where we use multiple fingers like Fruit Ninja , can these be disabled for specific apps/games on my iPad 2?

At the risk of a repeat "no" answer, I would like say add to the two existing replies and clarify that that I have never come across any setting that has been anything other than system wide, it's either on, or it is off, whether it's silent mode for everyone bar your mom, or send read replies to everyone except your dad etc. It's just how it works, and it's a conscious decision to enable consistency and ease of use more than a limitation.
