That's too bad. Mozilla is hampering freedom of modification and freedom of redistribution. Sounds like iceweasel will be the outcome for debian.
Lots of special purpose distros, (kiosk's, CD's, embedded etc), will look at other browsers or rename firefox in order to redistribute with their needed changes in place.
I wonder who convinced Mozilla to take this route. A bunch of renamed browsers will dilute Mozilla's name recognition, not increase it. Oh well.
