Please, please.... don't confuse the terms :-)

Repeat with me:

"GNOME3 is not gnome-shell"

 From http://live.gnome.org/GnomeShell

GNOME Shell is the defining technology of the GNOME 3 user experience.

But they (gnome3 and gnome-shell) both are different and separate things.

GNOME2/3 are a whole DE while "gnome-panel" and "gnome-shell" are just the UI (user interfaces), meaning that you can have GNOME3 with gnome- panel, you are not sticked to use the new UI at all (see the fallback mode).

Right. But the concept of separating the DE and the UI is new with the "newfangled" Gnome. Even without the new UI the new DE is hard to swallow, similar to the new GDM (GDM3) which in one swoop eliminated all the niceties of GDM.
