This is not something that should be in the scope of the guidelines.
Guidelines should be as less as possible about what to package, but
about how (of course there is the legal stuff).

This is pretty inconsistent, isn't it? If there is to be some extensions
in fedora, and some things have to be in guidelines, they should be.

In any case I can't see what is different between a firefox extension
and any other software in fedora. A reviewer can always (and should) 
question the relevance to add a package to fedora if the package has a 
bad record or security issues, or even a bad design and so on and so forth, 
but it doesn't need anything to be in the guideliens for that. 

Also users are not forced to install anything.

Much inferior solution than 'package what should be packaged', in my
opinion.
