Question Time

With Mozilla's increased focus on mobile, are they yet putting resources on CardDAV sync (for FFOS?) If so, would they need to interface with us? Would this put some fire on the Address Book re-factor stuff we've been long talking about? Answer: FFOS has its own mail client (different target device resources) so likely wouldn't benefit from any CardDAV work we do. If the code is JS that's not necessarily true?
