What about bugs which are only applicable in ubuntu due to different
depending packages? Do you really want to track all problems of a
package in ubuntu within the debian bts? I assume not.
For bugs applicable to both debian and ubuntu, I usually do file bugs
are in the debian bts, as many other ubuntu users and developers also
do. What do you expect more?

This is an old discussion with no real result. If the Maintainer field
was changed, then ubuntu would be blamed for stealing credits from the
original maintainer, something we don't want either.
