Yes I like that idea. It could be more stable for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS users to use more recent GNOME applications via Flatpak rather than the PPA (the PPA could be kept, but if it works well then perhaps Flatpak should be the recommended option). Or if we want to avoid using too many universal package formats we could try bundling all the GNOME apps bundled for Flatpak into Snappy instead - but that could be a lot of work to maintain. I think it would be in keeping with Ubuntu Next philosophy to try and get an Ubuntu GNOME LTS + recent front-end GNOME applications system to work. Having said that, the Flatpak system installs a GNOME 3.20 runtime so I don't know if it would be much more stable than simply running GNOME 3.20 on Ubuntu LTS via the APT PPA?
