Certainly, but the question here is not about individuals but about
the organizations.

Debian's policies tell all maintainers to submit patches upstream (and
that does not mean "tell them where they can get Debian and find the
patches themselves").

Debian's policies tell all maintainers to carefully distinguish the
Debian maintainer from the upstream maintainer, and to give proper
credit to both.

What I've been looking for is Ubuntu to do similar.
