low-latency vs. realtime in Ubuntu

No, this is wrong. Unless I missed this 'separate' repository. There are precompiled low latency kernels in the multi or universe, but there is no realtime kernel with Ingo's patches. For any serious work with Jack, particularly multi-track hdd recording, low latency is not enough. A huge issue that many less tech savvy, or at least less linux tweak savvy audio people face is configuring realtime privileges for non-root users. Having the structure of an official distro release to help with this one enormous obstacle to happy linux DAW-ing would do a lot to shut up the 'linux is too hard' naysayers.
