Personally I'd rather keep using the good old packages _but_ it would be
nice to have an official tool to manage/run/create flatpak packages,
this just to make sure that in case one needs to use a flatpak package
nothing will screw up the filesystem and cause more trouble than it's worth.

However a big fat warning should be present somewhere that bugs/problems
with flatpak packages are the sole responsibility of upstream/the
creator as I suspect bugs and problems will be the norm.
