Following some discussions with Sébastien, he filed that bug to ensure a
solution is found for packages using "dh":

Joey, your input as debhelper maintainer on what could be upstreamed
to Debian would be interesting.

I'm not familiar with Ubuntu's languages packs so I can't contribute much
on this topic but it would be nice if Ubuntu could create/use them without
having to modify the Debian source packages. I don't know whether it's
important that it be enabled package by package or if it could be extended
to all packages. Right now they are enabled on Ubuntu only for Gnome/KDE
packages through modifications to pkg-kde-tools and cdbs (for Gnome).
If someone has a good idea, feel free to submit it in the bug above.
