I don't think it currently does exist. However, that doesn't mean it 
couldn't be created.

Ask the sysadmins to create it to begin with. ;-) So perhaps creating a 
Ubuntu PPA first or actually any other old (private) repository, 
demonstrate that it is working, and then copying it over to a yet to be 
created apt.openstreetmap.org, would be the best way forward. If I 
understand correctly an apt repository is "simply" a webpage with a 
certain structure. So setting it up on apt.openstreetmap.org would be 
trivial from a technical point of view, assuming that it can be assured 
that the content works correctly and will be kept up to date.
