They could also theoretically be required to update the extension to a backdoored version; on a mass scale it would probably be noticed, but if done in an individual, targeted basis, it could probably pass unseen. Even that is a step in the right direction though; the problem with mass surveilence is that it is just that, en masse; if it's forced down to individual persons of interest, well, then that's definitely a good thing.
