Short answer is no, and we won't be doing it.

When people talk about "Classic GNOME" wrt GNOME 3, they mean the ported
to GTK+ 3.x, updated to GSettings, parts of the GNOME 2.x experience.

There are no plans to make gnome-settings-daemon, bits of the
control-center, and whatever else core components of the desktop
parallel installable.

The libraries will be parallel installable so you can run your
not-ported-yet applications, but core parts of the desktop won't be one
of them.
