At least in my experience, distro maintainers hurt as often as they help. I've worked on projects other than autopackage where lots of distro packages have been broken badly, in such a way that we got lots of tech support requests and "bug" reports.
Debian and Gentoo have also both managed to patch, QA and deploy fixes for non-existent security vulnerabilities before.
In other words, I think your assumption that autopackages will be bad compared to distro packages is itself a bad one.
But we'll see. Only time will tell.
