The debate has been fairly intense and it appeared, for a short time, that Chromium was going to win, at least from the developers' standpoint. The community has been split right down the middle on this issue and no one could concede.
Canonical has now reached a decision, at least for Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander), and the issues has been postponed for a little while. The main argument against Chromium seems to be related to how Ubuntu aims to integrate web apps.
