You might create a bug report, stating the advantages of the new version.
If the benefits are big enough to justify a SRU https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates or a backport https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBackports it might be done.

Please try this procedure to install the newest version of curl and libcurl from github:

@Emil: does my procedure fully answer your question? If yes, please set the thread status to "solved.

Thanks.
