The spellchecker is part of the default Ubuntu installation. Losing it from the archives would mean that 90%+ of the users would probably simply not have spell-checking, since average users are not familiar with extensions or that a spell-checking would be available from there, especially as it's not shown in Firefox's "get more dictionaries" functionality.

I don't see how it'd be better for the extension to be on AMO only other than for not needing to maintain it in Ubuntu. Unlike other extensions that were removed, this one is in main and part of the default installation - similar to ubufox.

But if AMO only is wanted, then mozvoikko should be removed from the archives for all Ubuntu versions.
