Do you see this, in itself, as a problem?  It seemed obvious to me that it
would be inappropriate for Ubuntu systems to submit their data to the same
repository as Debian users, since the data would be heavily skewed by our
default package selections, and difficult to filter.

reportbug submits to Ubuntu, instead of Debian, for similar reasons.

They are different, but certainly they are closely related, no?
