I think you should keep the current title. Of course, you could always start singing, "DOM, DOM on the Range..."
In a way, though, this is good for the credibility of mozilla.org. People are always saying Mozilla === Netscape, when that's really not the case. It reminds us that Mozilla is a huge but loose alliance, where people are (almost) as interchangeable as the code they write. If the Chief isn't part of the primary company sponsoring the project, that gives a degree of objectivity you just can't get anywhere else.
Don't get me wrong -- I don't like the idea of anyone getting laid off either. Have we heard anything about where the Chief Lizard Wrangler will be going next?
Keep the title. And I hope Netscape chooses a good Ambassador.
