Also, Dan Parent from OEone noticed that typing chrome://messenger/content/messenger.xul in a tab loads mailnews into the tab! Same with Chatzilla (chrome://chatzilla/content/chatzilla.xul )."

You are replying to this message

"Count me among those who say that the time for new features is after 1.0....Otherwise the thing will never stabilize."

Since when are you interested in seeing Mozilla stabilize? I thought that you saw Mozilla as "a risk in case it ever achieves significant market share and complicates [your] development and test procedures." If "all that does is complicate [your] test matrix and development process" and you're just asking "for Mozilla not to hurt [you] too much" then why would you want Mozilla to stabilize. I would have expected you to be rooting for all the new features under the sun so that Mozilla will never stabilize and you could continue criticizing the project and not have to deal with supporting a second browser.
