It's a little bit disingeneous to call Crispin the "creator" of AppArmor. Crispin writes papers, not code (I've heard him say as much myself when I worked at WireX [the company's name before Immunix and the Novell purchase]). He's a PhD theorist, not a programmer, and he tends to not get mired in details--so it would come as no surprise that he doesn't understand the Thunderbird profile on his machine.
Yes, he led the development of the higher-level aspects of AppArmor and wrote papers and secured funding, but most of the actual implementation details were handled by Greg Kroah-Hartman, Chris Wright, Steve Beattie, Seth Arnold and Jesse Michael (maybe others now too).
