https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/Gnome_shell_software_rendering
states clearly that the fallback knob will still exist (and will
actually be converted to a tristate for some setups) and that fallback
mode will still be available for a while. It also details the
significant amount of work needed before it can be totally removed.

I don't doubt that the long term plan is to drop the fallback mode,
but for Fedora 17 it seems clear that fallback mode will still be
present.
