You are way overreacting.

Reread this, the last paragraph of BP's OP, a few times.
  "I would not suggest that Debian commit to using LCC packages 
  at this time. We should participate for a while and see how many
  changes we'd have to make and whether the project works for us. 
  But I think we should be at the table and in a position to in-
  fluence the project. The other members are willing to have us 
  on those terms."

Note the part about "I would not suggest that Debian commit to 
using LCC packages at this time."  If Debian decides that it would
not be in Debian's best interest to follow the LCC implementation,
then guess what: it doesn't have to...
