On the official ubuntu side, I long ago gave up on seeing current drivers in the main repos.
I doubt it... The owner is Brandon Snider according to this site and his wiki page says he's working independently (no ties to nvidia).

I believe Ubuntu has a "stability before bleeding edge" philosophy, just as Debian, which it is based on. Therefore you are forced to use other repos for bleeding edge stuff.
