The way I see it is imagine if all car manufactures decided that they were going to stop making estate estate cars and replace their lines with a new car called a "convertable". This new car would look nicer and have a cool "wind in your hair feel". It would be all nice and shiny and everyone would be jealous.
The difference is that car manufacturers make whatever people pay them to make. I'm sure they could find people to develop GNOME 2 if enough of you were prepared to pay for the effort.
It's no different to the KDE3/KDE4 situation, the code had gone as far as it could, it was time for a fresh start.
The car analogy is bogus anyway, manufacturers are always replacing cars with new "improved" models, they don't force anyone to buy then. However, if you are prepared to pay enough, I'm sure someone will build you a Morris Marina so you don't have to deal with all this modern and different stuff.
The sketch shows a Helios (French) machine from 1901, note the tiller steering and the rearward facing passenger seats at the front, obstructing the drivers view.
