No, about that no user can see the reason why you are taking *their* freedom 
(or in your words: you first took our freedom, period). GNOME was always 
modular, so there's no point in demodularizing it, just because you want the 
user to be forced to use something.

Also some said having the user exchanging components hardens the 
maintainership of the whole thing. Well, that doesn't make sense, as the 
exchanged components is maintainted by *it's* developers and therefore one 
component less by *you*.

Of course it's your decision what GNOME3 will or won't be, but let me ask you 
(indirectly I already did, but no one seemed to recognize that): Is it really 
desired to scare users of? According to your responses: it is.

Besides... did modularity ever enslave a GNOME developer? Never. I expected 
more than a statement like that.
