I understand why you think this is a good idea, However hardcoding and
extension into Firefox isn't a good idea, for a number of reasons one
being the stablity of the end product. The only way this will happen is
from upstream. Please file a bug upstream maybe they will come to a
middle ground.
Once you file an upstream bug please give us the link here.
There is nothing we can do on our end except package the extension as we
do with others.
