It was a message to you and not meant to be public. Not a very big deal to me either.
For my understanding there is no real need to keep things like this
personal / privately for the purpose of a commercial or Ubuntu use.  As
Debian is Upstream for Ubuntu and Ubuntu might serve as upstream for
your commercial distribution pushing things into "upstream" might not
harm at all.  I actually see the Blends effort as a good chance to base
commercial applications on these subsets of Debian because it makes
things easier even for your business.  It is finally your decision
but the concept is quite open to this application.

I always try to improve the state of linuxaudio cq debianaudio where possible. The question is whether there is really a need for such packages in Debian, because many people prefer the custom way, especially Debian people imo. For Ubuntu you have the ubuntustudio packages.

If someone else thinks such metapackages are really useful also for Debian and starts making the metapackages, I'm open for helping a bit. We could share the same code base. All though my personal stuff will likely be different (and changes a lot very often).

All the best,
