Gnumeric is part of GNOME Office, so it is also under the GNOME umbrella
The thing is that GTK+ 3 is becoming more and more useless outside of GNOME,
given their recent changes, e.g.:
* client-side window decorations are more or less required. They "fixed"
their non-CSD fallback support recently, but that only means that it draws
its custom title bar underneath the WM's.
* discontinued support for theme engines, which means:
- theming is limited to CSS, much less flexible than C (or C++) code,
- theming code can no longer be shared between GTK+ 2 and 3,
- the existing oxygen-gtk3 theme no longer works, which broke Plasma
- efforts like the gtk-qt-engine have become completely impossible, every
single theme now has to be ported to GTK+ CSS.
* the default DPI is now (at least in master) hardcoded to 96 instead of
defaulting to the value actually reported by the hardware.
* abuse of nonstandard *-symbolic icons. Selecting monochromatic vs. colored
icon should be done by selecting the theme, not the icon name, and it
should adapt to the desktop. Non-GNOME desktops want colored icons, unless
they're using a theme like Breeze where (almost) ALL icons are
monochromatic (which also makes *-symbolic useless).
