Ubuntu Studio Project Lead

I have the crazy idea that Ubuntu Studio should be user oriented.
If that was the case, ubuntu studio needs to solve two really big issues:
1) complexity: PA vs Jack => ubuntu studio vs the user, Windows and Mac
2) stability: jacks crashes, timidity crashes, etc.....
Shouldn't JACK+Timidity start with init.d and be stable, working without
issues with PA ?
My Two cents.
