For those interested in this topic, you should really read this blog post:

It's by the maintainer of the unofficial chromium packages for Fedora,
explaining why it isn't properly packaged in the Fedora archive. All
the issues he discusses more or less apply to Ubuntu as well. They're
particularly a concern for being able to support chromium over the
live of an LTS.
