This I need to correct. In no way shape or form is the classic GNOME desktop being removed from oneiric at all, it will be still available in universe if people want it, however its less and less likely to be maintained upstream, so you may be able to use it for one, maybe 2 cycles without it starting to bit rot, but I do think a decision needs to be made sooner rather than later.
