I don't think there is much gain - an attached patch is not much better
than a link, and might annoy people with limited bandwidth.

But maybe this derived idea is some good: How about looking through the
repository of ubuntu pachtes (aka people.u.c/~scott/patches) and make
sure a link to it is sent to the approriate bugnum@bugs.debian.org?
Sounds like a very good idea, and fully in the scope of Utnubu. Some

 * Is it common to refer to debian bug numbers in ubuntu patches
 * Is this done in a unambigous way (like in debian/changelogs)
 * How big are the chances that an automatic script with get the bug 
   number wrong or mistake another number for a bug number

If the answers are not too bad, this could be implemented by Utnubu (we
pull the complete patches tree every day anyways)
