Consensus coalesced around a controversial proposal to "assume blobs comply with the GPL unless proven otherwise."

The real problem is that the Firefox name and icon should only be used for builds from Mozilla's officially released source code, but since the .debs are containing lots of patches Mozilla asked the debian folks to change the name/icon

So Mozilla just tries to protect the image of their product.
