It's entirely possible, yes; and I filed a bug along those lines some months ago. ...In the opposite direction, it is also possible that use of the font family may eclipse use of the distribution (or even a son-of-Ubuntu-Font-Family, as has been the case with DejaVu):
The bug tracker would be a useful, long-term location to record such thoughts and make it easier to act on them. In the mean-time, hopefully the very existence of the Ubuntu Font Family (regardless of name, or ultimate libre licence)
is contributing to the expansion and visibility of the libre/open font community, as well as contributing to the readability and beauty of various desktop themes.
