GNOME's fallback mechanism is too specific a thing to put in the
criteria. The criterion that covers it would be:

"In most cases, the installed system must boot to a functional graphical
environment without user intervention (see Blocker_Bug_FAQ) "

Obviously, when GNOME's fallback mechanism fails, that criterion is not
satisfied. If we have enough cases of that being broken, then we trigger
the 'in most cases' clause, and say the criterion is generally not met
by the release.
