I fully understand and respect this. I think it's kind of a compliment

And therein lies the potential trap -- I'd wager that most people who've seen or used gnome-shell so far aren't just "users", but developers.

If that's the extent of our target audience, then fine... but otherwise we ought to be looking for validation from a much a wider range of users that the basic ideas are sound, and preferably measurably more efficient than what currently exists, before worrying too much about how snazzy it looks.
