You're right in that, in theory, Mozilla doesn't need to be polished but the actual releases (Netscape, Nokia etc.) should be.

Unfortunately the truth is that Netscape has done next to 0 polish on top of the UI that Mozilla provides. As far as other actual releases go.. well, I haven't seen any other, except very limited browser-only products that have tossed out everything except Gecko.

Netscape's release, in a sense, is *THE* release of Mozilla and since there's no added polish by Netscape, Mozilla needs to be polished. Sad but true..
