I said "never" in the context of Mir issue, because that's the context of rgmoore's comment.
I guess I didn't express myself clearly, then, because I really did mean that Kubuntu depends on Ubuntu as upstream for most of its stuff and only deliberately differs on the issue of the supported desktop. In that one case, the disagreement between Canonical and KDE about Mir vs. X and (eventually) Wayland is forcing them to make a choice about something beyond just the desktop. They must either choose either Mir, which isn't supported by upstream KDE, or X (and eventually Wayland) which is Canonical is deprecating.
