They always get special exceptions for any and all Fedora policies that 
upstream does not want to comply with, with the excuse that otherwise we 
might lose the right to use the "Firefox" name (as if that were a 
catastrophe – Debian has been doing fine with "Iceweasel"). I'm totally fed 
up of that kind of unfair privileged treatment that NO other package in 
Fedora is getting.
