mozilla-browser, libnss3, libxmltok1, parts of pcmcia-cs and libnspr4 are
some packages already licensed under MPL.  The differences between 1.0 and
1.1 is mainly that 1.1 does not purport to grant you a licence to third
parties' patent claims.  This shouldn't affect its DFSG status AFAIK.

Yes.  Enhydra is an example.
