"...submitting upstream bugs to Debian BTS only slows down the packaging
work by requiring the maintainer to act as a go between on the bug."
Of course, it wastes a great deal more of upstream's time if the report ends
up being specific to the Debian packaged version of the software, or only
manifests itself on Debian systems (in the common case where upstream does
not use Debian).
