Ubuntu didn't change the key. On any kernel with the "magic SysRq key" enabled (which Ubuntu has), Alt+SysRq+K kills all running processes on the current VT. Therefore, it kills X.
Ubuntu's recent decision to disable Ctrl+Alt+Backspace by default is a separate issue.
On older versions of Ubuntu, you will find that either key combo will kill X.
