I didn't read that comment that way. Rather I read that switching
upstream developer *by itself* is insufficient reason to make a package
native. (I agree with that position.)

You don't seem to have argued against that. Rather, you've presented the
position that there are particular reasons that are sufficient for a
package to be native. That's compatible with a position that switching
upstreams is not one of those reasons, so I don't see what you object
