Yes.  Something I for one would like to see in Gnome.  It really did
make loading and saving files easier.

It might be worth noting that the typical Sun desktop was approx
1200x900 pixels on a 19" monitor, though, so having the text editor
and a file manager open wasn't a big deal.  PC users often have
desktop resolutions of 1024x768 or 800x600 on smaller screens, and
this may make a difference.  The spatial nautilus windows use less
screen space, though, so it's less of an issue now.

There is nothing inherently inaccessible about drag and drop -
as long as it can be controlled by the keyboard, and pixel placement
of the pointer isn't required - e.g. use alt-tab to select a
destination window, navigate within it, and then press Drop.
