I'm not saying otherwise, but keeping things flexible can't hurt.

It's in some doubt at the moment that Gecko will continue to have
adequately skillful people working on the core layout engine.  They
may, they may not, it's in flux. Hedging bets doesn't hurt.

It's just yet another reason to use a native shell, on top of the
already (IMHO) pretty good reasons that native widgets are much nicer,
and Mozilla's UI is a mess. If we stick to XUL we'd probably want to
be looking at Phoenix anyhow.
