I am afraid I am doing this with my extension.

While I understand your reasoning for not wanting developers to bundle
JSLib inside their extensions, my problem with not bundling JSLib inside
my application is as follows:
1. Anything that complicates the user's install process means fewer
users of my extension.
2. What if I had to hack JSLIb to work just-right for my extension and
if this hack is incompatible with other users of JSLib?
3. The whole updates.mozilla.org nightmare. I have no control over the
HTML of the page listing my extension.
4. What about Firefox?
