Very good question. What differences would result from moving the contest to the Foundation?
Craig, Les, or Luke can speak to the initial goals of the project and our choice to make it part of the MDN brand. FWIW, there is a trend to consolidate rather than decentralize developer-facing resources around Mozilla (tentatively called the Developer Program project). This might be the primary disadvantage of moving it further from MDN.
