usually badly/poorly/unmaintained upstream plugins/tools are out of Ubuntu main archive Security concerns are something that makes tools disappear from main, as well as bad-quality software (no testsuite, outdated, poorly maintained in Debian). So, I don't honestly know the reasons for the split (better: I don't understand/know grilo), but you might find this bug interesting https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/grilo-plugins/+bug/1394731 and also the old one https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1116098 HTH G.
