pyyaml and cython generated source

This week I uploaded a new pyyaml revision to Debian which, among other
things, now regenerates cython generated code as part of the build process.
For Debian, I think this is clearly the right thing to do, because the only
way to make sure the source and binary that are shipped are compatible is to
actually regenerate the generated code.
For Ubuntu, I'm not so sure because cython is in Universe (thus this message).
There are two options as I see it:
1. Promote cython to Main.
2. Revert the changes to regenerate the source and use upstream generated
source in the binary.
I'd prefer option #1 as it keeps pyyaml in sync between Debian and Ubuntu and
is technically the more correct option, but I don't know if Canonical is up
for cython in Main?

The following universe packages have new reverse dependencies
in main or got seeded. They need to get a MainInclusionReport and be
promoted, or the reverse dependencies in main need to be dropped:
o cython: cython cython-dbg
[Reverse-Build-Depends: pyyaml (MAIN)]
o python-support: python-support
