Its not a a good idea, but not for that reason. IF any insane person designed an intranet app for firefox specifically and not just for web standards, my hat is off to them for shooting themselves in the foot with a thermonuclear warhead and surviving.

For the non criminally insane, there are a lot of dependencies in linux distros. upgrading one part may cause a chain reaction of necessary updates. So including one newer version of an app, isn't that easy. What you find more typically with redhat, is that they will take features from newer versions and back port them to older versions in such a way that it doesn't require any new dependencies.
