I agree on the "organisation problem", but only on that.

Yes. You can also use Thunderbird from mozilla.org, libreoffice from ...
And switch from Fedora to LFS.
First a reminder: we have an update policy which explicitly explain
why we should not update, to not break things like that in a stable
So (as far as security bug are fixed) it is absolutely fine to keep
Thunderbird 17.0.x in Fedora 18/19.
Ok. Mozilla stuff have an exception and update to each major version
(which make sense for Firefox, but probably not for Thunderbird, as we
only provide the ESR version)

In such case this is the responsibility of the xulrunner or
thunderbird owner to rebuild all the packages which need to be and to
publish all the packages in a single update.

Definitively not acceptable.
