A few things to keep in mind

a) Mozilla is hitting its milestones quite nicely with the coders available. And besides, Netscape's been lambasted in the press for having "too many" coders on this project already

b) Mozilla isn't Netscape. yes, they have a vested interest, but they are two different entities. It makes good business sence for Netscape to keep its existing prprietary code/product going in parralel to Mozilla code.

c) this is a support release of an existing product. many businesses rely on the current release version of Netscape. By ignoring these users, in hopes that they'll contiue to the buggy current version untill the Mozilla release date rolls around ain't feasable or realistic.
