I don't think this is very likely to happen. The bulk of the appeal of
Ubuntu, so far as I can tell, is that it isn't your stereotypical Linux
server distro. There are plenty of other, more server-orientated (in
varying degrees, even), distros out there for the people who want a
stable and mature environment.
Ubuntu's core appeal is that it isn't a mature, slowly changing distro.
It's that it generally contains a pretty recent kernel, and that it's
updated regularly in much the same way as Windows desktops are.

I've always seen Ubuntu server as being very secondary to the desktop
line - almost for people who've already got a number of Ubuntu desktops,
and just want something the same with which to serve stuff.
