As long as it is (partly?) based on the fact that bugs will be fixed by Debian
for free so Ubuntu can just reuse the bugfixes and get the money for them, I
think it should be discussed. There is nothing bad in general with that as long
as Ubuntu gives their bugfixes back to Debian and we don't have to retrieve them
out of a mess of Ubuntu patches...
