Not that I'm the right person to ask, but I've heard Ben Collins from
Canonical echo that it doesn't make sense (from a maintainability
standpoint) for them to keep adding more kernels. A grsecurity kernel
should go into Universe but probably won't.
Did you know that the Security team takes proactive security features
from other distros and upstream to put into Ubuntu?  Also, instead
of a seperate kernel, they are splitting grsecurity into individual
patches and slowly integrating those . You are more than welcome to
create a PPA of your own and upload grsecurity kernels.
