While I think it would be wise to make this software clearly 
distinguishable from Ubuntu(Community) supported applications (maybe by 
another Category like the partner repository), I do not think that the 
hosting by Ubuntu/Canonical matters too much.

Likewise in the Android market nobody would blame Google for strangely 
behaving apps and there is no strict QA or other authorization process 
(IPhone ...) in place.
