That LP doesn't have the development version of upstream packages are
not the main reasons that I (an upstream GNOME translator) don't like
working in LP. I wouldn't mind integrating a branched (and sligthly
older) version of a program in both the branch and development version
upstream afterwards. My main objection to working in LP is A; that it
does not (yet anyway) provide a useable proofreading and feedback
system and B; your problem 1.
