I know some people having such computers and I can assure you that updates
break from time to time (especially their closed drivers part).
That's a bad thing a I am afraid I have to tell them to wait for me for

So, if they add an "added value" of backporting softwares themselves from
new version of ubuntu, I'm quite scared with this policy for their users.
