The DOM Apps code creates confusing prefs called gecko.mstone and gecko.buildID that have been misinterpreted by others in the past as a way to get the gecko milestone and buildID.  In fact, they represent the last time the DOM Apps code has run its registration code.  They should be renamed appropriately.

Summary: rename gecko.{mstone,buildID} prefs to apps.lastregistration.{mstone,buildID} or similar → rename gecko.{mstone,buildID} prefs to dom.apps.lastUpdate.{mstone,buildID}
