as i understand it the US export regulations have been relaxed enough
to where this should not be a problem, just so you don't intentionally
export to one of the blacklisted nations (cuba, iraq etc).

even if export regulations are a problem that does not preclude
properly merging the source in such a way that it can be distributed
as an actual patch to the mozilla source tree, much in the same way as
the international kernel patch works.  (the int kernel patch is being
distributed on ftp.kernel.org btw) 

as for breaking mozilla into smaller peices that is excellent news.  i
for one just want the browser not the crappy mail, news, irc, and
kitchen sink client.
