I am just speculating here but maybe it'll be a tad easier to turn off sense, and if you do it starts taking queues from bigG. Again I pulled this out of my overactive (read often delusional) imagination.Droid X CyanogenMod7 Nightly 154 Sensation 4G CyanogenMod10 KANG Nexus 4 Rooted 4.2.2 w/Nova Launcher Pro
Your phone will only be the latest and greatest for a few months.

Just "speculating" here too... given that the Incredible is supposed to have 8GB of total "internal" memory vs the Nexus One 1GB (512 RAM 512 ROM)... maybe the engineers had room to implement both interfaces by giving the users settings to enable/disable Sense UI and then soft-resetting. (Dual-UI-Boot) Again, just a thought.

i really wish i had my eris around still so i could check for sure, but turning off sense (by choosing the default launcher) turns off pretty much everything that sense offers over stock android.
so you could always fairly easily go back to vanilla, however, you wouldn't get the storage space used by the sense ui back.

you're not missing anything, the sense launcher can run google's stock widgets, which include that search bar.
people are confused because in the past, it was thought a "google experience" phone was one that ran vanilla android, but they seem to have either changed or clarified what constitutes a "google experience" phone now, which can include phones that have modified UI's

FWIW - the first phone that had Sense - (hero) also were Google experience phones, and say so right on the back of all the "second" run units.
My understanding is Google experience means access to what's collectively called Googlebits - market, gmail app, maps, AmazonMp3, Gtalk - and the closed source framework needed to run them.(•‿•)
