Can the top-of-the-screen bar be moved to a different screen edge? Can it be resized? Can the layout of the overview be altered? Can I change the shortcut keybindings? Can I revert to 'classic' alt+tab behavior? Is there way to show a pager at all times? These are just a few non-starters that effect my own workflow.
Why can't we just add GNOME panel apps to the 'new' top-of-the-screen panel? The argument against them seems to be "well they aren't that useful are they." In that case just leave them out by default but give me the option of adding them and if they're really not useful no one will add them. Some of us *like* dockapps and won't ever be persuaded by arguments like "It's really not the best user interface for that kind of task." Rethink the underlying paradigms all you like but don't remove the ones I use just because you've found your UI religion.
