I'm a little puzzled by this discussion.   Why not just set up a list  
of TLDs in a mozilla.org subdomain, sign the subdomain with DNSSEC,  
put the DNSSEC public key into firefox, and have firefox consult the  
TLD list in the DNS, verified with DNSSEC, whenever information is  
needed?

That way nobody can say that you have a software update problem.   Yet  
you retain the autonomy you need to get a solution implemented  
quickly.   If the solution proves out well, perhaps people will adopt  
it.   Even if it doesn't, it can't possibly be worse than a list hard- 
coded into the software.
