I am not sure I totally agree with your lack of low end of the UXL when compared with the LMS. You are talking a single db or less from 10-80 Hz.
The UXL hangs right with the LMS. Yes, the LMS is arguably the best driver available regardless of the price and has incredibly low THD numbers.
But, also remember that typically 4 drivers working half as hard as two will yield less THD than two.
Again, design the system so that everything is well within the limits and it is a non-issue. I wouldn't drive my amps to clipping levels, nor would I approach xmax on my drivers.
Either way, the LMS is the mac daddy for sure...but they are $400 more.
But, yes, I would not count on Behringer to release a new product on any timetable. Go with something readily available. Also, once again, two lesser amps give you a backup if one fails. You won't be at full capacity but you will still have woofage.
