Gnome "Gnome Shell 2.91.90 was released yesterday getting some fine adjustments according to the release announcement: 'This release just about concludes user interface changes anticipated before GNOME 3.0. The only significant change we expect after this release is to add a native network indicator based on NetworkManager 0.9.' Gnome Shell 2.91.90 brings new automatic workspaces, removed minimize and maximize buttons from window titlebars, a PolicyKit authentication agent and more."

You probably mean power users. But that's just a small percentage of the users. The majority doesn't bother to change the defaults even if there is a friendly settings widget to do it.

The majority of users don't care about having a window list either. Only power users care about it and they can use a extension.

Unless we see some kind of study we don't know what the majority of the users prefers. We were discussing the merits and shortcomings of docks and window lists. BTW, why do you think the dock approach is superior?
