but the categories and their contents are completely different and
ubuntu simply isnt debian, even if it inherits a lot of it.

restricted are the pieces that are not allowed to be distributed in
debian main by the debian policy but are distributed in ubuntu

who told you that ? 

there are at least 20 MOTUs spending a lot (if not all) of their spare
time for you to make this packages work right and to give you support
for them, why do you make such offending statements here and just ignore

can you imagine how much work it is to care for 16000 packages with only
~20 people ? 

universe is _not_ unsupported !
