Sure, and Google could decide that Android is a bad idea and abandon it. How many Android customers are paying (to Google) customers? How long would Android survive without Google's commitment? So your argument translates into one of relative size and of safe choices.
But we were talking about impact, where IMHO it is not a good idea to downplay Canonical's contributions. Even though I prefer Debian myself (on the server and on the desktop), Ubuntu is a very nice distro and the only one that has made inroads into the general public.
