You're not likely to get Ubuntu to stop using Launchpad, or anyone else
to start using it until it's open source, so the idea's something of a
non-starter.

In theoretical terms it's not a bad idea, I just don't see it likely to
happen as a planned effort, though it might happen if something like
Launchpad but properly open source starting gaining currency among a
sufficiently large number of projects.
