Sure, but the 64-bit Ubuntu was experimental once too.  Arm is already
supported by Debian, I believe, so it's really a matter of testing.  If
Freescale wants to release an Ubuntu computer (and can't offer it with
Windows), obviously they'll have to step up to the plate and move it along
from the experimental phase.  Very good news, imo.
