In my opinion, yes. I think any Ubuntu Flavour would be totally fine to use for development work because that is one of the best thing about the Flavours, as long as something is compatible with Ubuntu it is 99% compatible with a Flavour too. I only leave off 1% for those rare exceptions.
I would say that official Flavours are the only derivatives that can make that claim though because that wouldnt be true for Mint or elementary in the same percentage of confidence. They would likely still be compatible but with the official flavours absolutely.
