This is merely a question, and I'm not really sure where to place it. If there is a more appropriate place, please let me know.

Elementary has been slowly moving to integrate Flatpak. I personally do not agree with sandboxing solutions and make my best efforts to avoid them.

Elementary moving to distribute os basic apps such as terminal, files, settings, and the likes via Flatpak (or similar solutions for that matter) will mean I will leave Elementary os.

Does a timeline of this move exists? Or what apps exactly will end up in Flatpak?

Does this move mean they will not be available via apt? Can one possibly replace the Flatpak ones in the future?

I understand there are benefits to Flatpak. But there are also drawbacks. None of the benefits are problems to me today, and the drawbacks will definitely be.
