But I should be able to say, I want all my HTTP stuff handled by Mozilla.

It should be two layers of configuration.   What tool should be used to handle 
protocol X.  Then, IF KDE is still involved, what tool should handle 
particular file types.  I keep all my passwords in Mozilla, and proxy 
information etc.   I don't want HTTP requests to be made outside of it.
