Sometimes I think Ubuntu should use Fedora as its upstream.

In large part they do, just not directly. As well as Ubuntu benefiting from the extensive testing that new software gets in Fedora considerably before it makes it into Ubuntu, Fedora's 'upstream first' approach means that a lot of Fedora and Red Hat work is done directly in upstream projects, from whence it flows into Ubuntu, either directly or via Debian.

It's safe to say that Ubuntu wouldn't be where it is without Fedora's contributions.

It is wonderful when everyone works (cooperatively) together, be it Fedora users finding bugs in Upstart, or Ubuntu users finding bugs in ext4 and g-p-m; and the same for Gentoo, Debian, Suse, Mandriva, ....
"Ubuntu wouldn't be where it is without Fedora"
This is precisely the concept of Ubuntu (philosophy); no man is an island: we are each where we are because of each other, and would not be there without them.

If Fedora did not want Ubuntu to benefit from their work then they would of not released everything under a open source license. :)
