I saw something about that in Beijing last week, but in conversations, people still used the term "gongmin shehui."

Gongmin has to do with rights - rights is the first thing came to my mind when I say the word "Gongmin." The PRC constitution defines what is Gongmin and their rights. But Shimin sort of downgrades the identify and reduces the size of this group - villagers are not shimin. And some times this work is negative. Minjian has the least political meaning among the three. Not sure what the government will call it... But this is the way to achieve harmonious society. :)
