While mostly positive, it does point to a few shortcomings, such as how the extensions site wasn't able to handle the onslaught right after release, which for 2 days kept the reviewer from accessing the site. He also mentions troubles managing extensions, and the issue of many sites only working with IE (which he admits isn't Firefox's fault)."

Spoofing Netscape 7's useragent is actually much better than IE's here because the site has been verified to work with a gecko browser (Netscape 7) and your using a gecko browser. Which is unlike using the IE useragent and crossing your fingers and hope they don't use IE specific code that won't work with gecko.

Spoofing is not what we want to do which why I'd only advocate it if you're spoofing one gecko for another.
