Debian shouldn't be sending the message that experts in a particular field aren't welcome to participate in technical committees. Otherwise you'd have the farcical situation that when the question inevitably comes up (as it will in a few years) around whether X sould be replaced as the default, you'd prevent Keith Packard being involved.
Also it's worth noting that the only behaviour that's seemed to me, as an outsider, spectacularly inappropriate during this debate has been Ian Jackson with nonsense like his "if we adopt systemd here's the resolution to declare Lennart a big fat poopy head that goes with it". But Ian isn't a Canonical employee.
