We should make this (by policy) a mandatory thing for extensions that phone home in any way, and give them a field to put a URL in.
Version: unspecified → 2.0
Instead of a link, I think this should be an internal page extension/privacy.xhtml.

It might be more prudent for these cases to allow only a link to the plugins' homepage, than to allow it to install directly from the mozilla site. In a sense the lack of proper disclosure is not the responsability of mozilla.org, but the presence on the extension site does seem similar to a "seal of approval" (at least to unsuspecting users). And since mozilla/ff are free and clean, people tend to expect that from hosted extensions as well.
