After uninstalling Nightly, the available home-screen web app shortcuts I have 
on my Android home-screen are useless (i.e., "Application is not installed on your phone.") and only stand for deletion.

Should I be able to associate these with other browsers?
We use a special "intent" for webapps, so we can get special launch behavior and "app" tab behavior in fennec.

I see no way to re-purpose the shortcuts for other browsers. Considering a WONTFIX, but will think a bit more first.
If there is no way to re-purpose the shortcuts, would we at least be able to delete the webapp shortcuts?

Deleting is no problem (drag to trash bin in your rom)
I understand that you could just drag them to trash, but if you had a bunch of web apps, then deleted the app, that's a lot of addition work.
I'm just under the thought of ... if an app placed it there, it should clean up after itself.

Unfortunately, Android does not give us a chance to do that. Uninstall does not give us a chance, AIUI
