So, Ubuntu would have needed to put a very early rc in the repos, and pray that a final kernel release would happen in time for the LTS release, and also that no major regression appeared in the testing period. It would have been, simply, crazy. Anybody following kernel bug reports in any major distribution would agree, I think.
    I only agree partly. It is very clearly known what works and what not. Most blockers for new kernels arise from out of kernel drivers. Amd catalyst, Nvidia binary to name the most relevant for Ubuntu. These blockers alone justify the 3.13 kernel to be the kernel of choice.
