I've not noticed any lack of functionality. There again, I regard less
notifications as an improvement in functionality. I probably don't have
the "other components of GNOME" installed.

(In case it matters, I tried the new gnome-session and didn't like the
whole lack-of-menu/fading-with-icons thing, so I'm using
gnome-session-fallback. I don't know if it affects things other than
the panels or notifications. I'm not 100% happy with the fallback
either TBH.)
