Have you tried using NS4 recently? The /entire web/ looks crap as far as I can tell. So your example users friends will be pretty bored of them moaning about poor websites.
Moreover, there is the concept of "eating your own dogfood". If mozilla.org, as the vendor of (one of) the world's most standards compliant browsers, aren't prepared to get behind 21st century webdesign, then who will? It's a bit hard to go around telling people to upgrade their site from IE/NS4 proprietry crap when your own site is full of hacks to maintain appearance in one of the worst browsers ever released. The trend toward standards compliance in web design is only a good thing for Mozilla; peturbing that trend could be much worse than loosing the odd diehard Netscape 4 user.
