I think your paraphrase is exaggerating what I said, which was more (in the part you chose to reword) bonding is a big part of the benefit Ubuntu gets from its bug triaging and the risk associated with premature bug-closing is much reduced compared to the other big distros because Debian fixes to annoying bugs find their way into Ubuntu in time. In particular, I would prefer if you omit clueless, even in parentheses.
This is largely unrelated to what Ubuntu does and does not on the engineering side. I am sure that Ubuntu also contributes fixes and packages to Debian. But what do you think that the bugs fixed for the first time shortly before and during Debian's lenny freeze mean to Ubuntu 8.04, 8.10, and 9.04? They will likely be fixed in 9.04 regardless of whether they were addressed in Ubuntu or not.
