Given that the change from the suite to components is planned, for me the fuss is getting them to do it as soon as possible so there aren't multiple versions with their own quirks, installers, etc., that each get less testing (as some use the suite, some use the components), and that can require different installers for third party bits, etc. I'd rather see the advancement of Mozilla freeze for a bit, and do the switchover all in one big step -- even at the cost of a slight retrograde at first -- because the end result should pay off.
