Well, it's not really a matter of burden. I certainly don't feel
overworked, but I think you know what I mean. I just want to be clear
on that so people won't be afraid ask me to do things for them...

Luckily, Equinox is already in Ubuntu (though only version 1.20):


But more generally, yes new engines have to be uploaded to universe
first and the theme package must declare a depends in debian/control.
And yes, feature freeze does apply.

Are there any other widely used gtk engines that aren't in Ubuntu yet?
