Just copying the latest successful paradigm; looks sensible to me. (Email was probably the killer app of the internet before the web.)
But in Mozilla's case it makes double sense: if Mozilla BootToGecko is going to power smartphones in a few years (as the core of the OpenWebDevice), then it is not too soon to start stockpiling apps. App stores were surely the killer app of the smartphone (in a recursive sense, since they enabled downloading other apps). Everyone seems to measure platform success by the number of apps, wrong as it may be.
