Unfortunately this is not possible for Ubuntu yet. ChromeOS in
simplistic view is 1 application + kernel & drivers all compiled into
a firmware. Ubuntu is 20000+ packages available in infinite amount of
user configurations. Hence running Ubuntu development in continuing
mode will be quite dramatic for users..... with many packages
continuity being broken or uninstallable.

Have you ever tried running development release from day 1? I do it in
VM and in no way it is usable as everyday desktop.
