Customizing is essential for modern software, that's why I use Firefox for browsing and Gnome 3 on the desktop. Besides, Gnome3 is perfectly usable without extensions, most of them are in fact just convenience for XP / Gnome2 users who don't get the new concepts.
I completely agree with you. If you want to be dictated to about how your desktop appears and how it behaves, use Unity. If not, Gnome 3 + extensions are a great way to seriously customize your personal desktop.
Ubuntu with Unity = dictator telling you what your desktop experience will be.
Gnome 3 = freedom to choose.
I'll stick with Gnome 3 thank you.
