Will 11.4 be updated to GNOME 3.2?
As stated in the mail I just sent, it's likely :-)
Thanks, Vincent. I may wish I'd waited.
Last night I booted my laptop (Radeon HD 6310) with my Factory Build 296 Live stick and everything worked... fully-operational GNOME Shell with 3.1.0-rc6 as with 2.6.37. So I upgraded to Factory. :-)
Now the fglrx driver with 11.4 *and* 12.1 give me fallback mode... I suspect the people who have had Radeon issues all along will tell me I was only dreaming the last five months.
Still looking into it.

Solution: remove and clean up after fglrx... the radeon driver on the Factory iso does what I want.
I read SDB: ATI troubleshooting as well as the lizards page on fglrx. These led me to remove the two versions of the fglrx driver and assorted artifacts, and re-enable the radeon driver, and GNOME Shell works again.
