As Josh already said, its as simple as the Feature not being testable at 
freeze time, due to packages required by the Feature not yet being approved. 
In my mind, nothing more, nothing less.

Communication could certainly stand to be improved, which was one of the focal 
topics of today's FESCo meeting, but the schedule and feature process pages 
have been out there in the wiki for some time, and clearly state that if a 
Feature isn't testable at freeze time, it will be dropped. However, its only 
"dropped" in that its not a Feature touted for the impending release, no 
reason it can't still progress forward and be touted in the next release 
(and/or made available in the -updates repo for the release it missed, in the 
case of new packages like this).

Agreed. You've got a healthy head start on an F11 Feature here. :)

(Which I'll gladly try out on my netbook, though I'm actually pretty happy 
with the tweaked gnome setup I have on it now...)
