I think it's critical too.  Currently there is no security support in the 
development series.  I have a hard time envisioning something with no support 
from the Ubuntu security team as a release of any kind.  It's certainly not 
something I could recommend who isn't involved in Ubuntu development run on a 
system they care about.
