For the latter, I mean "When Debian fixes something, we benefit" and
such fixes _always_ go to ubuntu when sync runs.
On the contrary, when something is fixed on ubuntu just _sometimes_ it's
sent back to Debian.

Mails from M.Shuler in this thread will help you.
If you don't want to read not even them, we're talking about source
package name.

Given that you're interested in ubuntu packages, you could have learnt
what happens if source package name already exists and how to manage
that on ubuntu side: I guess blacklisting as requested by Luca then
probably renaming to ubiquity-whatever. How about time spent doing that
rename instead of writing to d-mentors?
I would have considered that as your love of ubuntu.
More love of ubuntu could also be adding some ubuntu-related ubiquity
extension commands as Filippo and others did for debian ones [1].
