I pushed the naming change into FF 22 Beta 4 at the last second (write, 
review, land, approve to uplift, land in one day).  I can't 
realistically get any further non-major-failure fixes in for FF22, where 
we'll be exposing this by default.  Unless there's a driving reason, I'd 
like to avoid in-the-field changes where possible, though they are 
doable (but that would mean people trying to use this would need to do 
"negotiated: true, externally-negotiated: true" for as long as they 
wanted to support FF22).

I'm ok with the name and description, so long as the default changes to 
'false', which is what I implemented and landed.  We should just comment 
in the IDL file that this should be set to true if the application is 
using external negotiation.   I believe Peter Thatcher was also assuming 
the default would be false.
