FWIW, I thought it was pretty clear, but it looks like it's still not:
gnome-panel & metacity will be available for use with GNOME 3.0 (they
probably wouldn't be part of 3.0 officially, I'd say, although we didn't
really discuss this), so people would still be able to use the old look
and feel for a while.

If that's true, it's probably a good thing to be saying publicly and to add to our FAQ for events.

I definitely agree, and I was intending to write various blog posts on
this topic, but it looks like people need to kick me hard to get me to
write a blog post ;-)

Kick. ;-)

(I'm happy to help the marketing team come up with a nice message if
help is needed there)

Your blog posts would help. We could learn from them.
