The GNOME3 classic mode is new, less well tested code, with less features and new bugs. it could be made to be a good replacement for GNOME2, but that might take a few developer years of work.
Ubuntu have put some nice work into GNOME3 classic, bringing back things like the system monitor. and there is the cinnamon project. so maybe in a few years GNOME3 will be able to do what want, but for now MATE just works.
