No, we've covered this issue several times in the past. I'd recommend that you read http://www.linux.com/feature/131752 and http://www.linux.com/feature/149483 for a more complete examination of all the conflicts. As for whether Fennec "should be allowed" -- yes, I think we all agree that Apple should change its policies and (among other changes) allow third-party Web browsers, media players, and apps that are "similar" to iPhone's default apps. But they don't. Look, here's the bottom line: regardless of whether you like it or not, Apple decides what runs on the iPhone. Apple and Apple alone. Mozilla does not.
