You do realise that LXD is wrap around LXC, or rather libxlc, which
improves its functionality, while not taking anything from it?

Some of that functionality is live snapshot migration, bit improved
security, improved/easier to manage networking, overall better
management. 

Also, while Canonical is not only supporter of LXC, it is practically
major supporter, as far as I know ( but could be wrong about it ).So,
again, I don't really think that it belongs under NIH syndrome.
