This is a valid point and FESCO should be consistent and treat things 
equally within the project one of the point that made against systemd 
was lack of documentation I don't see why this should be treated any 

Given that this is the so called "Default" and affects significant 
portion of the Fedora's existing user base this needs to be in pristine 
contention before pushed out.

No it will give users a fully baked cip user experience if users where 
used to using "Gnome Applets" and an equal "extensions" is missing

How about Gnome Theme-ing support where does it stand alot of users like 
to custom their look and feel?

Well as has been mentioned  a simple way for users to create custom 
launcher is lacking in Gnome Shell.
