With the fix for this bug I'm dropping the clearly obsolete question,
but IMO adding different questions would confuse less experienced users.
I think power users who can cope with regressions caused by packages
from sources coming from sources not allowed by unattended-upgrades by
default should be able to change the u-u configuration file - or add new
configuration files overriding default values.
Optionally updating packages automatically from PPAs or unofficial
sources would be indeed be a feature that could be made available in an
easier way, but I think it would be better to track this potential
improvement in a separate bug.

Origin pattern is unexpected on dpkg-reconfigure
Status in unattended-upgrades package in Ubuntu:
In testing out the new unattended-upgrades behaviour I was asked an
unexpected question about the "unattended-upgrades Origin-Pattern".
This is not a great experience, it doesn't match anything other than
internal code patterns.
For example, the default offered does NOT look like a sensible Ubuntu
default for Ubuntu users:
Is that correct, or a mistake?
What I would expect is simply this:
Install security updates (Y/N)
Install performance and reliability updates (Y/N)
Install updates from unofficial archives (Y/N)
The latter would map to all PPAs etc.
