Are you speaking about mozilla? ;)

Well, that's definitly not the first purpose of volatile, and so, I
would like to postpone it a bit.

However, in the long run, I think you're right about adding newer
packages if they fix security issues, and we can't fix them otherwise.
But I think it needs more than just some consideration how to do this in
a non-breaking way.
