If they want BSD-licensed projects to incorporate their code, they need to
license it under the BSD license (or similar). They are not in a position
to "allow" their MPL-licensed code to be included in a BSD-licensed
project. That just doesn't mean anything. We never needed their permission.
We could be "BSD-licensed except for this one bit which is MPLed", but we
don't want to be.
