How to access notebook name counter?

When a new notebook is created, it gets the name Untitled-xx, where xx 
is a number.  Is there a way to create a new notebook programmatically 
and avoid incrementing this number?

CreateDocument[{}, WindowTitle -> "something"] increments it, even 
though a name is explicitly set.

Alternatively, is there a way to access this counter, and decrement it?

Motivation:  I was looking for a way to rasterize the selection in the 
notebook from a palette button.  My current solution involves creating a 
new notebook, and copying the selection to it.  Please see here:

I'd prefer not ending up with Untitled-bignumber just because I use this 
many times.
