I wont be able to attend the UDS conference online sadly, as i start exams on friday, but here is my opinion on things.

Firstly What is the reasoning about wanting to drop mysql from both debian and ubuntu. All the software I use relies on it and its much easier to get said software working with it then other types of alternatives that are supported.

In my past experiences on relying with upstream mysql work bench for packages for newer releases they arent reliable, as they update their packages every other release for ubuntu. This makes it hard for those of us that want to use said tool. Also I feel that the same might hold true.

I would be very disappointed if mysql were removed as it would mean more time for me to get servers that need a back end online as well I am very happy with reliability and stability of it. 

Will there be a transcript of the meeting online at some point as I would like to read it.
