Developers have already made up their minds and released their new innovations, and "not" what the research is asking for.  You want to look at new small screens like tablets, phones and other small stuff and replace the traditional desktop with that.  Each thing should have their own interfaces and not make a "One for all" desktop, which is what appears to be happening at this point.  

I was talking about GNOME doing research.  Not Fedora and developers can
be influenced as has been shown repeatedly when such results were
published in the past

Yes and no.   There are some workflow differences.  No desktop icons,
overview mode etc and GNOME will have to find out how well it works.
