That's the point of this thread, some decisions are taken and people make assumptions about the reasons behind based on the scarce info available.

I think we must find a better way of communicating these changes. It is a difficult problem to address because designing GNOME by comittee doesn't work and we really need the leadership and expertise of the design team to reach a good user experience. But on the other hand, without properly communication, we lose the opportunity to develop a design pattern language in the GNOME community.

I'm sorry for just point what I think that it is a problem without suggesting a defintive solution. I think Allan posts are very good explaining the design concepts and the new designs. Maybe this is the way to go.
