It's why 32-bit applications can't play sound out of the box on Debian wheezy (at least as of a couple of weeks ago), because both PulseAudio and Debian's multiarch implementation care more about 'technical excellence' than working software.
(I know, I should have filed a bug for my specific problem, or at least found out if there was one already, but I'd just spent ages trying to figure out why 32-bit applications can't use OpenGL on NVidia hardware only to discover that the bug was filed, the reason understood, a fix posted, and the maintainer intentionally didn't apply it because "if there's two things in the world I don't care about it's wine and the nvidia driver". I had no desire to head right back down that particular rabbit hole.)

Was this a package maintainer or upstream?

Yes there is, the Technical Committee (see http://www.debian.org/devel/tech-ctte ).
