Nope, but as soon as gnome-shell can be run with software 3D acceleration 
(which is now possible but still not implemented) I guess GNOME will 
remove the fallback mode.

Fallback mode is aimed to deal with VGA cards that provide no hardware 3D 
acceleration but if hardware 3D acceleration is not needed anymore, 
what's the reason for the fallback mode? Fallback mode is not here for 
the "romatincs" of GNOME2+gnome-panel :-)

Say bye, bye! to the old GNOME2 desktop in the way you knew it. I don't 
discard that gnome-shell could be configured to act in a similar way to 
gnome-panel but I guess there is still a long way until we can get that...

It's Sunday, people is sleeping after a long journey of gnome-shell 
tweaking :-P
