Good point.

Sometimes, though, compatibility with the original distribution
ceases to be important because the original distribution has
been superseded by something else.

Debian has fundamental organizational problems which lead me to
think that it won't be able to keep up with improvements in
Ubuntu.  If that is so then there is a good chance that Ubuntu
will replace Debian as the standard dpkg-based distribution.
