Watch out for rt-kernel issues with 3d desktops. When I was trying to develop a 
metapackage for Cinnamon against Saucy, I had issues with some rt kernel 
versions being unable to run the 3d desktop. I would expect similar issues both
with Unity and with Gnome.

The work I was doing was seriously hampered by the fact that my own install 
upon which it was based has diverged so far from anyone's default install.
If you want to support GNOME and Unity, watch out for rt-kernel bugs affecting
at least the radeon/r600g video driver. I don't know if those made it into 
Saucy's released kernel, but those were what made me throw in the towel.
