I think SF is a crutch that at this point isn't actually helping porters
with bootstrapping of Ubuntu Touch.  Mir is better supported, and the
integration requirements for Mir vs. SF are largely the same -
so I don't see any reason that it makes sense for porters to bring up SF,
which has a lot more Android baggage to get in the way, instead of going
straight for Mir.

Yes, the image was broken because we're trying to be too clever in
supporting both Mir and SF.  If we dropped SF support entirely, this
particular breakage wouldn't have happened.
