If it is really a problem to distribute builds of the freely available source 
code of Mozilla, then Mozilla just is not real opensource. So, plan of action 
would be:

Drop mozilla from Debian.

Make a press release 'Debian is sorry to have to announce that the Mozilla 
suite of programs can't be released with the Debian GNU/Linux software 
distribution because blah blah balh'.

Stand back and watch.


Enough people like and use Mozilla that I think it would get wide attention.

Enough people like and use Debian anough that they won't switch away from 
Debian.


(Of course, just IMHO. IANADD and IANA Mozilla User)
