They can't wait for Firefox 3 final, nor for any other vendor. Canonical
has a strict 6-month update cycle that keeps development going.
They can't afford to wait for any other vendor, they have to take the
best decision that allows them to stick to the update cycle. 
This constant push of updates is part of the reason why *ubuntu is so
successful today.

Correct me if I'm wrong, I might have misread something.
