Netscape has historically always provided CCKs - Customization Kits. I'm not sure whether they've updated the CCK for 7.0 yet, and if not, I'm sure they are going to in the very near future. They are very interested in corporate accounts and might even produce a customized build for you, if your company happens to be a high-profile prospective customer.
