The underlying problem is that Mozilla has a blacklist for bad protocols and there should really be a whitelist for accepted protocols instead. The problem introduced itself when a new shell feature was added to Windows XP. So, shell: did not cause any problems before (in Windows 2000 or previous) and nobody thought to check it until now. If there would be a white list, then new protocols could not cause these problems as they wouldn't be allowed unless explicitly enabled.
