If the reason for having a package called "firefox" is so that people
will recognize it, this won't help much, I think. I think the set of
people who are inclined to enable commercial or multiverse is almost
equal to the set of people who will soon figure out that "IceWeasel" is
in fact a Firefox in disguise and hence, we will have achieved nothing
more than more maintenance overhead.
