Don't be too down on them. Wayland and Unity might really be a good path
forward. It is a grand experiment that can only be executed wholeheartedly
by fiat, and Canonical is taking it on. We in Debian-land get to reap the
benefits of Ubuntu's experiment if they get it working well, but don't have
to deal with the upheaval until a lot of the kinks are smoothed out and
don't have to touch it at all if the experiment fails. I call it win-win
(and I also call it "better you than me").
