Gnome Fallback was designed to be the 2D fallback of gnome-shell.
It's developed by Gnome upstream and AFAIK there's no plan to
deprecate it. Quite a few people are actually re-implementing the old
gnome 2.x features on top of it.
As far as Edubuntu is concerned, we'll continue to ship it as an
option in our installer as long as it's maintained by someone (Ubuntu,
Debian or Gnome upstream).
