I think this reduces GNOME 3.0 to gnome-shell which is not entirely right.
Actually GNOME 3.0 is a API/ABI-broken release which includes some new
interface elements if you have hardware support but also lots of other
stuff (zeitgeist comes into my mind, mallard help, dropped Bonobo, etc.)

Saying that GNOME3 without hardware accelaration is GNOME 2.x is like
saying that Windows 7 without Aero (do they still call it "Aero"?) is
Windows XP.

Some years ago there was nearly no support for WLAN in free operating
systems and now it's mostly fine. Some more years ago you didn't even have
2 acceleration for many cards making it impossible to watch video. That
also has been fixed. And I am confident that it will be the same for 3D as
it has become an essential thing for any modern user-interface.
