I would call it a regression that shouldn't pass QA. One day your ads 
ands scripts are blocked and the other day they are not. Great user

And even larger disadvantage comes in when they are not updated. Contain 
memory leaks and so on. The biggest problem here is that the packager 
who imported those addons is not keeping them up-to-date.

Sysadmin can copy those extensions into place anyway. Then it's up to 
him/her to keep them up-to-date. Currently we have to take care of that 
and we don't (or if anyone wants to claim that we do then we do it 
really poorly as there are already newer versions of addons that got 
pushed with latest update).
