Did you notice even Debian had packages for it? Why then not Ubuntu? Is there any other possible reason than that Ubuntu packagers don't want Ubuntu users to try it out?

By including special code for non-standard stuff like "SUSE extensions", systemd is just putting a bandaid on the problem instead of fixing it. And that's a shame.
This is a hobby project of Lennart and it's not tied to Red Hat. Lennart has said to be happy to cooperate with any large distro, including Ubuntu, so... Draw your own conclusions here...
