Because on windows moz driver is also in charge for accessing O and OE 
address book.
That's actually totally disappointing fact, that we must still keep it...
Actually we must even gbuildify moz module, even if it is stated on 
gbuilfication status page:

"please do not convert this, it is going to be replaced ..."

well, this just really sucks ;-(

I see three options here:
1/ extract the parser bits from mozilla driver (reverse engineering) or
2/ find an alternative parser solution
and integrate the picked parser implementation in the new mork driver
3/ discontinue O and OE address book support (from LO 4?), and wait 
until windows platform
get non deprecated O/OE native support and then reenable it again.
