Idea: Ask Mozilla for OSM.org in Firefox new tab page?

I know, I know, they get kickbacks for including commercial websites, but hear me out:
Mozilla’s mission is “(…) to promote openness, innovation & opportunity on the Web”.
The precedent is already there; Wikipedia is or was included on that page.
Could we ask them to include OpenStreetMap in the new tab page:

  • in countries with high absolute FF installs but low relative number of OSM contributors per capita
  • optionally, if they’re not comfortable doing this for all users, just for a fraction of them?

This seems as it could be done within their Experiment framework.
After the link is rolled out, we can observe the impact quite easily in the Pascal Neis’ tools.
If that succeeds, then maybe expand it?

Anyone in @osmf-board being in touch with them?
