I'm guessing that you're not going to volunteer on the manpower side, and I
don't think that it would be a good way to spend resources even if we had
them. You're welcome to attempt to convince the Mozilla project to change
the way that they work for the benefit of distribution security teams. If I
recall correctly, others have unsuccessfully attempted this in the past, but
since you are interested in this issue, perhaps you will try again and
report back to us.
