I don't recall ever reading that as part of their strategy, but I
don't need proof, I'll trust you that it's true.

I also trust that they won't be able to pull it off, quite frankly.
They can't even ensure clean upgrades from Feisty to Gusty and frankly
I'm not sure I'd agree that TRYING to do that is a wise decision. I
may be biased, having run Debian Sid for the past several years, but I
have found that "user settings" are as often a cause of breakage than
distro-supplied settings. That's why I re-install Debian every week,
because without a fresh install you're not really getting the benefit
for all of the minor (read: config) changes that take place - like
artwork, cursors, fonts, resolution settings, sound configuration,
file manager defaults and so on.

Again, this is personal opinion and not my suggestion on how to
proceed, but I simply don't think you can CLEANLY update AND keep user
settings entirely intact.

Yep. :)
