Real quick... off the top of my head...

"Get more Addons"... navigates there.

It has no scarry scarry messages about bad extensions... like mozdev gets...

ie it is whitelisted by default... mozdev is not.
It allows xpi installs without any signature hassles.
(Like nobody has ever installed VIA drivers before and
quickly waved off any warning about signed drivers...)

So they are pretty much coopting distribution by user experience.
What's hard to do elsewhere... is easy at amo.

When I think of Firefox's main claim to fame being "Tabbed Browsing", and THAT
having been developed at mozdev... by HJ(I wonder often how HJ is
doing?) I wanna
puke on the current mozilla crew. (A read of this bug... solves that notion
