It really sounds like the good thing to do, but I'm not convinced that
this will actually happen. No one has been really working on this in the
last years, and I don’t see any efforts in this direction currently.

I understand the rationale for going “full 3D” for GNOME Shell, but the
overall result is that we will have to maintain the gnome-panel +
metacity solution separately, for ever. This will not be a big burden,
but the real issue behind this is there will be two entirely different
user experiences.
