Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
This question would be best answered by someone from Canonical but till then ...
Canonical's focus seems to be on "convergence": having as close to the same experience across form factors. This is a technically challenging task.
