I understand platform as not to include applications, basically covering
the scope of Maemo. The vast majority of the Maemo platform is open
and the trend has been towards completeness.
Within that platform scope, I too think that diverging from upstream is 
and that alignment of packaging with Debian makes sense.
What happens on top of the Maemo platform is a different discussion
