I'm not opposed to any of these suggestions, however it's too late in the cycle to be included in the 20.04 LTS release. Feature Freeze  is well behind us and today is the UI Freeze .
We should revisit this at the start of the 20.10 cycle so that any of the newly added components have time to be fully tested and nicely integrated into Xubuntu.
Thanks for the suggestions and follow up!
