Thanks much for pointing out this policy. It seems most of the checklist could also apply to an IceCat add-on, except maybe for "Does the extension contain all necessary build scripts?" -- In most cases add-ons are provided in an xpi format (really a zip file) which contains the sources in a format already executable by IceCat. Certain add-ons (that's the case of LibreJS) do use an SDK called the Add-on SDK and require to be "built" using the SDK.

I think the test for whether it needs a connection (which means some sort of dependency to an online service, making it SaaS) something we need to enforce with IceCat. Not sure how we can check for this yet in a way that could be automated.
