Gnome "Clement Lefebvre, the Linux Mint founder, has started working on a GNOME Shell fork called Cinnamon, which tries to offer a layout similar to GNOME 2, with emphasis on 'making users feel at home and providing them with an easy to use and comfortable desktop experience'. Among the features that we'll probably see in Cinnamon are GNOME2-like notifications and systray icons, option to change the panel position and other panel options like autohide, etc. Some of these features are already available through Mint GNOME Shell Extensions (MGSE), but their functionality is pretty limited."

No, all the forks of the GNOME 3 desktop shell shows that many users can't let the task bar go, I don't know the numbers, cause there is no way to know it, but they are pretty verbose.

No, what shows is that UI designers (and their supporters) should be rounded up and shot dead.
