I think it's perfectly fine to resist, and the more vocally the better.

The Gnome team is perfectly free to ignore such entreaties, but they should
at least be aware that people don't like the directions they're going in.  We
know they're stubborn and opinionated, and many people have complained about
their newfound religion (`all users are the same') without much apparent
success.  None-the-less, I certainly don't intend to just shut up and go
along quietly.

>From my point of view GTK/Gnome has the best combination of features/
practicality/widespread-adoption of any of the current toolkits, so there's
definitely a reason to support it well; if the Gnome team can be badgered
into actually listening to their users, then it will simply be better.

Fast, small, soon; pick any 2.
