for the "terms" for a PPA, the trick is more for the end user. as they are
not supported, officially, in anyway..

the creators of the PPA have quite a bit of freedom.. when adding one,
there is a message as such, where, you can be causing instability, etc..

they are advertised as 3rd party, and unsupported.. its handy that the
infrastructure is supported.. its an easy way to provide updates for a
package, to an LTS release, or software that doesnt "fit" in the debian
upstream or ubuntu repos.. the issue i see is when folks add them, and
expect support for them in the main ubuntu community..
