The commercial repository has until now not been managed by Launchpad,
for whatever reason.  However, from the Launchpad 1.1.8 release notes
posted to devel-announce a few days ago:

* Launchpad can now manage Canonical's commercial Ubuntu packages
    repository, meaning that users will in future be able to file bugs
    against packages in the commercial repository. The commercial
    repository will be managed using Launchpad starting with Ubuntu's
    Gutsy release. Within time, Dapper, Edgy and Feisty's commercial
    packages will also be managed in Launchpad.
