As far as I had understood both "roelofs" and "ringerc" were complaining about release speed, the time a release is maintained, and new features bringing new bugs.
AFAICT that has nothing to do with bundling of libraries.
To the extent the bundled libraries are modified, it certainly does. And even where they're not modified, the mere fact that they're additional copies means extra pain when security issues affect (or may affect) them--particularly when the browser version is no longer maintained by upstream.
But that discussion is more relevant to an earlier article.
