I think you missed the point, Ubuntu's work would then be part of Debian
rather than superceding or conflicting with what Debian does. Instead
of Debian annoying its users by adopting Ubuntu-like feature, or
annoying Ubuntu by not doing so, everyone would be able to get what
they want within a reusable framework.
Keep in mind that if Ubuntu is able to easily bend Debian to its will
and create a top-notch desktop, anyone else can do it to... including
Debian. No need to throw in the towel or compromise anything.
