Currently the software rendering would render everything using software. Ideally that would only use software for the stuff that is not supported. Apparently that is quite difficult.
The software rendering also doesn't work under some architectures (arm + s390 IIRC). Furthermore, OpenBSD mentioned they need some work as well to support software rendering (should be ready around GNOME 3.6.0 release).

True. In fact, my xrdp sessions cannot run Gnome Shell at all (runs Xvnc in the back, really).
