One particular issue is the ability for users to modify the top bar via
extensions. This part of the UI is vital for giving GNOME 3 a
distinctive visual appearance. If we do have extensions, I would very
much like to see the top bar made out of bounds for extension writers,
therefore. We have to have at least *something* that remains consistent.
