A balance have to be found here: Kubuntu maintainers have to ensure shipped 
packages work with the platform, upgrade smoothly, work on all supported 
hardware, and comply with Ubuntu guidelines. That and there must be enough 
workforce available to take care of packaging.

But that is a good topic for a BoF I think.

AFAIK Kubuntu policy is to get all patches reviewed upstream.

I remember a few UDS where we had a session with Thiago, reviewing Qt patches. 
I don't think it is possible to create BoFs for all packages, but creating 
BoFs to review say platform (kdelibs, kde-runtime...), workspace (kde-
workspace, kdeplasma-addons...), pim (kdepimlibs, kdepim...) and calligra 
patches with relevant maintainers would already be a good start.
