Respectfully: Why not?

The Ubuntu people, having actually derived Ubuntu from Debian, are the
ones who are in the best position to know what they changed along the
way. On the other hand, we Debian people, having created Debian from
various upstream sources, know nothing about how Ubuntu differs -
unless we are particularly curious or happen to be Ubuntu people

It seems natural that the "what changed from X to Y" question belongs
best in the community that actually did the change, rather than in the
community that created X but had nothing in particular to do with its
transformation into Y.
