What can one really expect? Gnome 3 is continually trying to solve problems that nobody had, like the one described above.
For instance, Gnome 3 also boasts about being the best single tasking environment (i.e. for running every app full screen, one at a time). The window manager (mutter) even decides for you when you don't want to have any margins around your windows (arbitrarily, of course), because who would want to right click on the empty space? After all, there is no right click on a tablet, now is there?
And so on and so forth. I mean, if I wanted make all this stuff up, I would not be able to.
