"What's disturbing (to me, at least) is that the code changes made by Netscape aren't passed back to the Mozilla project."

You've got an example of this -- a mozilla file which Netscape modified and for which they did not make the change publically available? You tested the 1.0 branch (where Netscape based its release) and it's not working for Mozilla there? You can demonstrate that Netscape has modified Mozilla files to make this work for them and that it's not something in the Media Player, in a Netscape specific file (which they're not required to offer back) or broken in Mozilla because of some other Mozilla specific code?

Making the claim that Netscape isn't passing changes back to the Mozilla project is just silly, unless you can prove it. Netscape develops the overwhelming majority of its code _in_ Mozilla. There is no value for them in not doing so for all files that the two apps share.
