You mean, one needs an initial Debian Maintainer Upload flag set
and the Ubuntu maintainer is somehow fast-tracked through the
http://wiki.debian.org/DebianMaintainer process, right?

This is really a problem, which has improved since the PTS also
shows buts in Ubuntu in the lower-right corner, like in
(I just found it).
Ubuntu has a nice page here
where they also explain that Debian developers can close Ubuntu
bugs by adding "(Closes:lp:" as a prefix to a launchpad bug number
in complete analogy to our Debian approach. We could think
more about how to learn more easily about problems mentioned
in lp and possibly other sources.
