It's very easy to do that interpretation from your first statement:
The Gnome 3 "overview" is such a great invention that
Red Hat (company behind Gnome) decided to leave it out
of the default setup in their money-spinner. Yep, that
is what I call a vote of confidence.
Here it sounds like you claim Red Hat carries the responsibility for GNOME 3, and even doesn't have the courage to bring the full GNOME 3 experience to their customers.
And that is what I reacted to. GNOME is a project, where Red Hat is a participant, pretty much on the same level as everyone else who wants to contribute. That Red Hat decides to not enable a new feature by default for their Enterprise customers, doesn't mean they don't have faith in it. But they obviously listens to their customers' concerns, and try to avoid upsetting them. And for customers who want that new experience, they can enable it when they are ready for it. That's something completely different than claiming Red Hat doesn't have faith in something.
If Red Hat hadn't had faith in the GNOME 3, why would they ship it at all? Why would they keep on contributing to the GNOME project?
(those questions are rhetorical questions)
