So, maybe you can clarify who needs/uses the desktop packagesets; I
see both "desktop-core":

and "desktop-extra":

It seems like there are no uploaders at all for "desktop-core", while
"desktop-extra" does have uploaders, including ~ubuntu-desktop team.
I assume, then, the packageset you're asking about is "desktop-extra"?
 Since both your requested packages are already in the "desktop-core"
packageset, maybe the ~ubuntu-desktop team should be added as an
uploader for the "desktop-core" packageset?

I don't have context for the history of the packagesets, but that
seems like the most logical thing to do, assuming there is no reason
*not* to allow ~ubuntu-desktop upload rights to the "desktop-core"
