So to confirm you are saying this is NOT a security issue in any way
shape or form? I find this odd because DoS's in web browsers are often
considered CVE worthy. Is there something in this issue that prevent
exploitation/etc? If not then it deserves a CVE even if it is a "low"

I don't think web browser dos's are suppose to be CVE worthy. Our (Red Hat) advisories for Firefox and Thunderbird mention "crash...", but they probably should not (my fault, sorry ;)).
