Hi John,

You are welcome not to trust Mozilla if you do not wish to, but you are

search engine have led us to take actions which are not also in the best
interests of users.

Perhaps it might be wise to be aware of Mozilla's track record in regard
of how they go about changing the MPL before suggesting that there is a
non-zero chance that this may happen in the way you imply.
