I suspect that there's a clash of interests. Isn't UNITY based a lot on
GNOME? Among users of the GNOME mailer Evolution Ubuntu is known to
continuously cause serious issues. Perhaps the GNOME package maintainers
could explain the Ubuntu policy regarding GNOME packages.

A lot of packages are synced with Debian, so perhaps GNOME packages
needed by UNITY are not synced with Debian, but chosen to fit best to
UNITY. That's just a shot in the dark.
