If there is security issue in others rpms ?

You realize that extensions count for around 0.1% of the software we
have, so if they place to much burden on the security team or packagers,
the rest of the rpm would place much more burden ?

Like most softwares we ship.

There is 8 extensions in our stable release. There is 19357 binaries
rpms, and 7612 src.rpm. 

What is preventing firefox is the mozilla fondation policy, that is
completely inadapted to any serious commitment to quality by a third
party due to their disrespect of well established procedures, and
disrespect for their distributors.
