Matt, I think that's kind of harsh.  It's perfectly appropriate for him
to ask on debian-devel whether anyone else cares about this sort of
thing.  After all, it does affect all of us.  Besides that, I didn't see
anyone from Ubuntu ever make a general announcement to Debian developers
about who they should contact if they have concerns about things like
this, and there isn't any contact information on the launchpad site.
