Yes, this can be done by adding debian/patches/ubuntu.series that
lists all of the patches that need to apply on Ubuntu.

The tricky part to remember is that if you add a patch to
debian/patches/series, you will probably want to add it to
debian/patches/ubuntu.series or Ubuntu won't have that patch applied

I can do this if there is consensus that we want this. The Debian
GNOME team is a bit hesitant about this strategy but it may not be a
big deal if this package is mostly maintained by the Accessibility
