Personally, I'd hate it if it became a GNOME standard. It's way too navigationally bulky (if what you're searching for is not immediately present) and it displays too much information that you have to hunt through if all you need is a location or a system setting or a new program. If I want to search for an app, the deskbar is a much quicker way that doesn't get in the way.

That being said, I don't see a problem with it being a standard panel option, like the deskbar. The standard GNOME menus (sans deskbar or SLAB) could be present since it's simple and clean and easy to understand. However if you wanted to augment it with the deskbar or replace the standard GNOME menu with SLAB or Gimmie ( http://beatnik.infogami.com/Gimmie ), it'd take only a few mouse clicks.
