Firstly, my social circle is not confined to Debian users. Secondly,
although I'm not one of them, I know that many people who like to run
Debian on their desktop prefer to use testing because they feel it is
more up to date. I don't know what proportion of the overall Debian
userbase that represents, but neither do you.

I don't agree at all. If xfce is more like GNOME 2 than GNOME 3 is
like GNOME 2 then you might as well argue the contrary.
