It will be difficult to phrase this question in such a way that there's
actually a chance they could consider it. That is, a way to ask that
there might be a chance they could say “it's fine for you to do that”.

Asking the bald question is likely to go quickly through to the MozCorp
legal department, who have *zero* motivation to give such a risky
answer, and every motivation to simply say “we decline to give
permission” without seriously considering the matter.
