Not really, because if the icon is distributed in the hicolor icon theme, it
may be used to represent versions of Firefox that would not pass the Mozilla
Foundation requirements for a trademark license. MoFo are being inordinately
stringent with distributions themselves, so I strongly doubt they'd show any
support for GNOME essentially routing around the problem. :-)
