So yes, it IS great for GNOME, just not for GIMP/Inkscape/GCompris/XFCE/LXDE/etc and that's why several of these are moving over to Qt.
We get innovation on the desktop shell level (GNOME certainly does innovate there) and apps moving cross-platform and to newer UI development technologies (QtQuick and QML) so I guess it is a win for everybody...
