There's a sub-optimal "fallback mode", which is basically GNOME2 (panel, self-
choosen WM (...)). But I guess it's not what you expect before 3.2 is out 
(panel not finished, applets not ported). 

Though I don't know what is required to enter fallbak mode nor how to set it 
up. Recently I've switched back to KDE4 (I hate new technologies, which are 
combined with someone forcing you to use it's companion, instead of developing 
something less single-solution-only).

A DesktopShell is definitively something which should not be a one way. Plasma 
for example offers greater functionality and flexibility, while it doesn't 
matter what other software (in our case: WM) you use.
