To be a little behind the latest greatest in kernel-development would be
perfectly acceptable for me. I run Ardour 2.5 on Ubuntu 7.10 with a
MSI-Laptop 12 Months "old" -- it works quite well. So having new apps in
Intrepid and wait maybe 3-4 months for a brand new kernel should not be
that big an issue.
And that could free you dev-people from the pressure, to have a
brand-new kernel running in time for the next Ubuntu-release.
BTW: have you asked Canonical for help on this? Such as: assistance by a
paid dev to make the rt-Kernel run....

To be honest: the graphics/video inclusion is quite nice but:
1.) graphic work can be done in any Linux - you dont need a specialized
distro for that. GIMP is standard, just install Inkscape, Blender, Krita
and maybe Xara and your done in standard Ubuntu (Mandriva, Debian, Suse,
Knoppix you name it...) as well.
2.) I do not see a pro-grade videosystem in Ubuntustudio. Cinelerra has
its patent-issues (that do not apply in Europe BTW) and is quite oldish
today. So video is not really covered anyway.
The important reason to use Ubuntu Studio ist the rt-kernel and its
integration in the Ubuntu-System - having all the same HW-support in a
rt-system as you can have in a desktop-distro is unique.
