One small reason, but most of the reason is that it's had RC bugs and
been out of date on random architectures for ages.

Anyway, I cannot see a serious tenable argument that we're better off
keeping mozilla 1.0.0 just because a couple of mozilla-locale-foo
packages aren't ready for 1.5 yet [1], so we'll just remove from testing
any of those that aren't ready when mozilla finally makes it in its own
right. They'll have a chance to make it back in. Fortunately, half of
them appear to be OK at the moment.

[1] As I make it, the following packages in testing depend on a specific
    version of mozilla in such a way as to cause problems when upgrading
    mozilla. If you can back up your "about two dozen" with an expanded
    list, please do so.
