Bug#487201: MPL in common-licenses and convenience of packaging mozilla extensions

I think that's the real point of disagreement here, for what it's

common-licenses is part of base-files, which is included on every
Debian installation.  Some do need to be small.

(No opinion on whether the MPL should be part of common-licenses,
personally.  It seems borderline.)

Allowing debian/copyright to rely on files _other_ than the common
licenses in base-files would be a larger and different change, so
off-topic for this bug.  Unless done carefully, I don't think it's a
good idea.
