I vote against directly putting the apt-get.org packages into
universe. On first import they should land either in multiverse or in
a completely separate archive. Then the mass import process can happen
relatively quickly (well, licenses need to be checked for
redistributability, of course).
A package should be promoted from this archive to universe if it was
reviewed and tested by a MOTU, and the license matches the DFSG.
This will ensure that people who only use universe won't get obviously
broken or braindamaged software; OTOH the folks who really want it can
get their apt-get.org crack easily.

They should be at least notified about the new repository. If they
like Ubuntu (and maybe can even be converted to use it :-) ), then I
think they can be allowed to upload to our apt-get.org archive
straight away. If they want to be involved more, they can go through
the MOTU process and work in universe, but this should be entirely
optional. Write them a mail, and do the offering, let's see what
