As said elsewhere: XMMS still will run fine under GNOME 3. And I do mean the gtk+1.x compiled XMMS, though maybe your distribution doesn't ship it anymore.
GNOME Shell to support a "classic" mode

All the iTunes users will be jealous. This year will surely be the year of the linux desktop.

Ah, the stupid sarcasm again.
Anyway, to quote yourself
And what do we users gain from all this application breakage?
You said application breakage in some weird relation to the GNOME 2 panel. I responded to that. Now instead it is about some official GNOME 3 media player? Whatever.

Someone complained about parallel installs of GNOME2 and 3.
ebassi says that the gnome 2 libs are parallel installable so it's all good.
But then later admits that doesn't actually help that much since application functionality is often reduced/broken in GNOME3. HIS example was Banshee. But it's all the user/applications fault, not GNOME3.
I questioned the benefits of the changes that caused that breakage.
Your defense was that OMG! XMMS still works.
A true WTF. I'm not even sure why you would make the leap to XMMS.
XMMS has nothing to do with this conversation.
