Consider:

"If you want to ship extensions, themes or plug-ins installed by default
or as part of the same installation process as the Mozilla products (as
opposed to, say, linked as XPIs from the default start page), and you
plan on distributing them under any Mozilla Marks, you must first seek
approval from us."

That seems clear enough to me. I have written to them but meanwhile want
to hear from others about this restriction.
