We will cover automated fallback on systems which aren't capable of
Shell. Whether there's going to be a manual option to choose the
fallback GNOME interface on systems which *are* capable of Shell is a
policy decision, not a QA issue. If desktop team decides to implement
such a mechanism, we'll test it.
