Not really.  "Upstream" is a confusing term, especially when used in the
Launchpad context (Launchpad uses "upstream" to also indicate projects
which are directly hosted in Launchpad).  Apart from that, it's not even
correct (Ubuntu package might not exactly match upstream).

We've thought about how to best name this, and never came up with the
better name.  The other best alternative we came up with was "Imported",
but we figured that was going to confuse more people if displayed in the
UI (i.e. was that stuff that was imported that I uploaded, or imported
from the package/upstream).
