Including VirtualBox guest drivers in trusty iso.

It looks like the package *does* declare the modaliases in the control
file (took a deb from the trusty archives).
But the package is not included in the iso at all. I can't even apt-get
install it manually (that is a good test of its absence right?).
I filed a bug (
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/virtualbox/+bug/1288096 ) but I
don't know how to tie it to the trusty project. could some help out?
PS: how can one file bugs against the iso itself? clicking on the
report-bugs link on the trusty launchpad page (
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/trusty) takes me to the "Reporting bugs"
