The TC decision didn't say anything about the gnome metapackage AFAICT.
You're welcome to try and get the gnome maintainers to revert that other
change, or go to the TC to get them overruled again, but I don't think
this is any of the release team's business at this point.  Moreover, the
current gnome-core package in wheezy depends on network-manager-gnome,
so not unblocking 1:3.4+2 doesn't seem to help you in any case.

So I've added an unblock hint for meta-gnome3/1:3.4+2.
