I sure hope they keep to the core values of fast, lightweight, etc. that xfce has had for so long. From the sounds of it though, they are trying to be a new Gnome or KDE by adding all these seperate apps, new dependencies, and general "bloat".
I'll still give 4.4 a decent try when it goes final, but I think the time is approaching where xfce is no longer the light and fast alternative, instead just the smaller brother of Gnome, etc.
