Thanks for making this list. In the criteria you mention "They are good 
quality apps" I think this criteria should be more detailed and the 
upstream QA process documented and linked. I propose to add the 
following information:
  - There is a reliable test suite executed at least for every release.
  - Description of the coverage of the test suite(s) (unit, functional, 
API, ...)
  - The tests are executed at build time on all the arch we support and 
if not a rationale is provided to explain why some arch are excluded.
  - autopkgtest are enabled and executed on Ubuntu releases against the 
actual binary packages.
  - The test plan is documented.
