Take a look at the Draft 1.0 User FAQ (there's also an XML/XSLT version if you want to try triggering bug 146119 ;-) and give feedback using the link at the top of the page. Also check out an early draft of the 1.0 Reviewer's Guide and send comments to ralph[AT]dimp.com.

"We're also after standards-compliant eye candy to show off what Mozilla can do — stuff with the appeal of the Complexspiral Demo or the 'Time Is On The Move' DHTML clock."

After just taking a quick look that patch hasn't been reviewed/super reviewed.

Before any code can be inserted into mozilla, it needs to be checked by 2 (or sometimes 3) people first. The first person is the reviewer, they look over the code to make sure the patch programmer hasn't made any errors. The super reviewer (for gui I believe alexf is the guy) does the same thing. Then sometimes, depending on what mozilla.org is saying, your patch needs one more review. I find this is usually done by Asa for gui modifications like this one.

In order for all of this to happen, the person who wrote the patch or someone really interested in it needs to contact the proper people. If they don't, the patch will most likely just sit there unnoticed due to the size of bugzilla and the business of people reviewing/super reviewing.
