You might be talking to the wrong companies.  Seriously ...

We support Ubuntu.  We'll support Debian with updated kernels/apps (had 
a long discussion with a customer a year ago ... they had an *ancient* 
Debian kernel, coupled closely with an *ancient* mysql, were 
encountering problems, that were in the relevant bug trackers as being 
fixed for several releases now ... and still wanted us to help them 
develop workarounds).
