Another possible advantage is keeping our GUI shell more orthogonal to
the layout engine; not having looked at the code, I could imagine
porting epiphany/galeon to something other than gecko if we ever end
up wanting to do that, without causing much end user disruption.
While with mozilla you have the xul chrome tightly bound up with the 
gecko engine.
