This is something that should be discussed with the AMO team primarily.
I think they'd probably like the idea, but as it's the same team that is
working on the (web app) Marketplace, which is pretty high priority as a
part of the Firefox OS ecosystem, I guess they don't have a lot of
manpower for this right now.
That said, as the Marketplace builds on the same website base as AMO, I
think they'll not have an extremely hard time to port that payment
infrastructure over to AMO. Also, I think that there are plans for
enabling the possibility for the premium feature stuff (or e.g. in-game
purchases) into web apps via the navigator.pay API, so I'm pretty sure
it can be made usable for add-ons as well.
The Mozilla and AMO platforms might need some contributor help to bridge
the gaps there, though - and I'm sure they'd welcome your patches, esp.
when it's making web features more easily usable for add-on devs. ;-)
