Debatable - a Debian repository is signed by a Debian key. A repository
which contains packages which originate in Debian could still have
Origin: debian - especially, in the case of Emdebian Grip, where those
packages are binary compatible with Debian.

When I get time, I am still expecting to be uploading Grip packages
directly to ftp-master, at which point Debian repositories will start
carrying Grip packages directly.
