Nobody appears to be willing to maintain such a package. Security
updates becomes a royal pain with just repackaged binaries. And yes, I
don't think doing that work to make it easier to use proprietary
software is time well spent.

If they don't remove the packages will stay on their systems, but they
won't get security support, etc after dapper is EOL-ed. Frankly, I
don't care if copying in a firefox works. It's not a supported
configuration, nor something I (and it seems nobody else either) is
willing to, or interested in supporting.
Unless any new arguments are raised, I won't post any more to this
thread as it does not look like we will be able to come to an agreement.
