Jesse isn't saying that having Firefox is the deciding factor for the
question of whether it should be the default.  The choice of name is
bikeshedable (It's really the Red Hat Desktop Team's vision at the
moment; your points about how many different choices than upstream made
makes it no longer GNOME) but the name is separate from the issue of it
being the default live image.
