One can also make the argument that since Ubuntu paid people to fork

I've been working on this specifically. The idea is to create an Ubuntu
team which would interact by volunteer DD more closely (filing bugs for
their packages in the BTS for all relevant issues, for example).
On the other hand, the DD would have to act promptly on those bugs,
so Ubuntu can get the new Debian package ASAP.
This is detailed in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DCT and
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DCT/Proposal . However, this hasn't been
discussed (enough) with others Ubuntu developers, and I won't have time
to work on this in the next weeks. So, if somebody wants to take this and
move it forward, ping me by mail/IRC.
