The official docker releases bundle specific (and vendored with "docker-" prefix) versions of the runc and containerd software. In order to ensure a working system and to prevent issues like FS #50430, it would be advisable to update the docker package to fetch, build and prefix the specific runc and containerd versions specific to the given docker release.

This would also allow timely releases of new docker versions as 1.12.0 is currently (I suspect) blocked by the fact that the required versions of runc and containerd haven't been officially released yet and are only available via git. The release versions of both are not compatible with docker 1.12.

It could be argued that this is a flaw in the docker release process, but at this time, this is how they are operating.
This task depends upon
