Bug#572983: live-helper: Please add *-updates apt-lines when --mode ubuntu

the question is not if it's possible to use third party sources, but if lh should add the update repo for ubuntu automaticaly and by default (same as the security updates or volatile are when building debian images).
lacking any knowledge about ubuntu, it would be nice if you could tell, if lh should do this (and the bug itself is thus valid), or, if not, we should close the bug.
Yes, it probably should since default installs of Ubuntu have those suites enabled. However, I'm not in favor of complicating lh config with a set of options for this like those that exist for Debian's security/volatile.
I saw on the wiki  that there are plans to "rethink sources.list and sources.list.d handling". I think we should solve this as a part of that effort instead of just hacking on this feature since there is already a very easy work around/solution available. If this is the appropriate place to discuss I'm happy to reply with some ideas, otherwise I'll chat with you on IRC.
