For those who want to be blind followers of some self-appointed upstreams, I guess Ubuntu is probably not their cup of teas.
The problem for Kubuntu is that they're trying to follow two upstream developers that are pulling them in different directions. Ubuntu's long term plans involve switching to Mir, and KDE's long term plans involve switching to Wayland. Kubuntu is left in the middle, forced either to figure out a satisfactory way of getting KDE to run on Mir or to keep X.org (and eventually get Wayland) running on Ubuntu. There simply isn't any way of avoiding this kind of challenge when two upstream projects disagree about long-term strategy.
