Nope. Its entirely the responsibility of Ubuntu and Canonical which is doing this.

Yes, and why does Ubuntu/Canonical exist? Exaclty, because there is an ever-moving evolution in the world of distro's that's fed by the fact that everything is open, in all senses of the word.

Ubuntu feeding off Debian means that if Debian dies Ubuntu goes down with it.

Pure nonsense. Ubuntu's community is so large now, that they'll have no problems finding package maintainers. And IF Debian ever goes down (which it never will, so this discussion is irrelevant anyway), what do you think that those Debian devs are going to do? Stop working? Of course not; they will be going to Debian deriratives, including Ubuntu.

You along with the rest of the Ubuntu users need to understand that first

1) I'm a SuSE user since quite a while now;

2) There is nothing to understand, as explained in the above.
