Bug#390441: release-notes: Document unclear Mozilla security situation

Package: release-notes
Severity: normal

Proposed text: (needs to be checked by a native speaker)
The Mozilla programs are important tools for many users. Unfortunately
their security policy is to urge users to update to new upstream
versions, which collides with the Debian way of backporting security
fixes to the stable version. During Etch lifetime the Debian Security
Team might come to a point, where supporting Mozilla products is no
longer feasible and announce the end of security support. You should
take this into account when deploying Mozilla and consider alternatives
inside Debian if that poses a problem to you.

-- System Information:

  APT policy: (500, 'unstable')
