I'd say that it is a clear violation of the DFSG, not only in spirit.

The Debian Way (tm) would be to drop mozilla, firefox and thunderbird
from Debian -- there's no reason what works with the FSF can't work
with the MoFo.

By the way, what is the status wrt OpenOffice.org, which has the same
kind of issue ?
