While the kernel developers seem to consider it an interesting thing to have users upgrade kernels without touching anything else in the distro, I don't think many distros share their enthusiasm. ;) Certainly in cases where I've done Ubuntu and Debian troubleshooting, a first response of mine is often to ask them to undo local changes like custom kernels.
If an end-user is using a distro, then they should use what the distro provides. Anything else is just completely unsupportable.
