That's an understable position, the reality though is that we are trying 
to stay close from the Ubuntu user base and not so much from the GNOME 
one (Unity and GNOME are pretty much different experience nowadays).

The fact that Ubuntu/Unity still relies on GNOME components is making 
harder to give a GNOME experience "close from upstream" on Ubuntu at the 
moment. That's not going to change before the next LTS, but in the 
future Ubuntu should be a ble to provide a first class experience both 
for Unity users and GNOME users (having less interactions should mean 
less frictions between the desktops, and more flexibility for GNOME to 
be closer from upstream on Ubuntu)
