Ah, iirc that's GNOME's Snappy equivalent. I suppose that's a question that Ubuntu GNOME's going to have to answer at some point. Do you want to support Flatpak, Snappy or both? There's also AppImage, an independent project which does a similar thing.

Hey all,

A lot of the podcast are talking about Flatpak (formerly XDG apps) which
has picked up a bit of momentum and has the support of the GNOME
foundation. They provide distribution agnostic packages with everything
bundled in.

I haven't done any testing yet but it looks like a way of potentially
allowing people to always have the latest GNOME apps in a reliable way.
Here's a list of what's available so far:

Could be something to keep an eye on.

All the best
