I generally believe that it is best for derivatives to keep as close as
possible to their upstream as possible - from a technical point of view,
disregarding other opinions about the Ubuntu "fork" specifically.
In this case I see no "collateral damage" with this approach. But really
I am not following Ubuntu closely so cannot reliably judge the
implications (as example, when I a few years ago helped repackage the
MoinMoin wiki engine for Ubuntu I was caught by your choice of switching
to a newer default Python version).
Good luck with this!
