Question on automatic migration of Debian packages into Ubuntu

During automatic import periods like currently for Karmic, is there
any reason that a Debian package would not be imported into Ubuntu? If
the Ubuntu package has no Ubuntu specific patches? If the Ubuntu
package has Ubuntu specific patches (-ubuntu)?

I am currently investigating why certain OCaml packages are failing to
build on Karmic[1].

For exemple, for source package "graphviz", the package seems to build

However, the package has been built against OCaml compiler 3.10.2 and
not latest 3.11.0:

The current version in Karmic is 2.20.2-3ubuntu2 while it is 2.20.2-3 in Debian:

Any idea of what is going wrong? Should I manually request something?
