People did notice and there was some discussion about this (on blogs and
IRC, at least). I don't know the details for this, but you can ask the
art team (reachable through the gnome-themes-list mailing list) for
those details. IMHO, it makes sense to have clearlooks evolve - even if
it means new things I don't like (I'm with you for the scrollbars ;-),
but I'm getting used to them). And I 100% trust the art team to do the
right thing.

Note there's still a ClearlooksClassic engine, for people who don't like
the new default.
