That's just the mindset of the Ubuntu devs. If that's bothersome, one
could also run plain Debian (as I do for many years now). 

Every distribution is great. But to me over the years, Debian has
proven to simply be the best general purpose, long time supported
distribution in the world. I'm serious. No wonder, Ubuntu and many
other great distributions put their trust into Debian by choosing it
as their base. Oh, and the best live audio distribution pure:dyne now
is Debian based as well.
