AFAIK there is no reason for a Mozilla extension to be distributed under
any specific licence. However, for Mozdev to host it, it would need to be
agreeable to the copyright notice at http://mozdev.org/copyright.html,
which requires an OSI-compliant licence.
So AFAICS he can write the extension, but not host it at mozdev.
