As far as most people seem to be concerned GNOME is the short form 
for 'The GNOME desktop'. I quite ceratin that the thing that runs on my
desktop is in fact a desktop environment, and with the present state of
'network objects' in Gnome you can hardly claim the 'NOME' part is
actualized in some form. Why confuse people with something that by now
probably belongs in the category of 'X desktop trivia'?

Just IMHO of course.
