Ok, let me try to provide a more practical use case for you then.

At times, Ubuntu needs to avoid certain build-dependencies because
they would add an unwanted "universe" binary dependency to a "main"
package. In some cases, that is the *only* change Ubuntu makes to the
package. I believe it benefits Debian for Ubuntu and Debian packaging
to be as shared as much as possible.
