If there are that many, I guess a lot of these are either not brought to -legal's attention or are in response to flames or immediate closes (DDs, surely the correct tags are moreinfo and help if you don't understand why?) because someone dared to file a "foo is non-free" bug against their beloved package. Neither is particularly healthy, but it doesn't look as one-sided as your comment suggests.

We do collectively understand that there are Free, full-featured graphical
browsers *other* than Netscape, right?
You're seriously suggesting that Debian wouldn't be laughed out of the
park for releasing without Mozilla at the moment? [...]

Do other Mozilla packages suffer from the bug(s) keeping Mozilla Firebird 0.9.1 in experimental? If so and it's not solved, this line of discussion may be moot anyway :-/
