I am on Raring.
$ apt-cache policy unity-2d
  Installed: 6.12.0daily13.04.01-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 6.12.0daily13.04.01-0ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 6.12.0daily13.04.01-0ubuntu1 0
        500 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring/universe i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

I do notice that they are all (unity-2d, unity-2d-spread and so on)
only a few kB each, perhaps they are just placeholders to satisfy
dependencies that have not been cleaned up yet.  On the other hand I
am getting updates to them every few days which seems odd.
