"Or, to turn that around: If it's so close to a distribution, what's stopping mozilla.org from saving everyone the trouble of creating a mozilla-based distribution and doing it themselves? "

To date it's been a matter of resources. We barely have the resources to accomodate our development community. Now add to that community of hundreds (thousands if you include our dedicated and consistent testing/bug reporting/triage community) a few million end-users and assume that those actually keeping everything running don't grow in size and resources and you've got a problem. Would you recommend I stop spending my time helping developers and testers and start spending it helping end-users?
