Reporting and Nominating Bugs for Mozilla Firefox 1.0

This will allow the FDT (heh) to develop an action plan for the milestones between now and 1.0, prioritize bugs and so on. It's essential that people start doing this now, rather than later, otherwise bugs might slip through the cracks!" Further details are available in Ben's posting to the Firefox forums.
Is anyone actually reading the charter link I'm pasting, over and over, every time these questions come up?
I don't see why any of these additional apps need to be integrated into a single monolith in order to be useful. That's what communication protocols such as DDE are for.
Anyhow I can see I'm wasting my time, I could argue various points of logic, based on over five years of experience in user interface and browser development, and it still wouldn't be good enough for joe-expert-commentator and his opinion. I'm not "pissed off" - just confused (as I usually am) by these discussions because they're counter to most of my experience/background - people using straw men to distort their opinion into hypothetical "user and market needs" that are often orthogonal to logical requirements.
