No.  Doing that means you lose any chance of getting Evo/Gecko into some
financial institutions/government agencies.

One of the major points of using NSS is that it has undergone FIPS
validation[1] three times by NIST and is currently in process of getting
a fourth validation.  It's had years of documented testing and
certification and this is a major selling point to some people.  Using
NSS grants you this certification automatically, so I'd say that apps
should start using NSS.

Another advantage of nss is that it already has a working, shared cert
storage. No need to reinvent the wheel here...
