Ubuntu ONE or not the question is simple,
Ubuntu is the only Canonical project to make a very useful and lovely
distro for our desktop and all their effort are focused in it.
Kubuntu is only a "hobby" of a pair guys that will never the same
attention as Ubuntu.
The result is that all Canonical projects are only Gnome oriented.
No one o very few (just a pair) Canonical developers will work in the
distro to cure details for improve it. The Kubuntu destiny is only in
the hands of KDE...also for the default settings.

I always thank the Kubuntu developers but I think this is the fact.

Just my two cents,
