I must agree here.
What I see here is an attempt to make a global list of local policy.
That won't scale administrative.
You're trying to apply 2 structures on the same namespace.
If you would like to get some authoritative answer on the existence of a zone boundary, the only place you should administer this is in the DNS itself.

I'm very afraid that Mozilla is trying to hijack the authority model here.
If this is hardcoded into Firefox, and requires a software update for changes to work, then all TLD's are delivered to the goodwill of Firefox developers to have changes to their zones work in real life.
And what's next, TLD's that need to propagate changes in their zones to each and every software developer, so it can be hardcoded in their products too ?
