I'm not a maintainer, but I tried this as well.  I haven't been able to find any privacy issues in 66 (save for some creepy changes to Pocket, which is already disabled), and the only two instances of Mozilla branding I can find were already present in Iceweasel 65 and presumably don't count (entries for Firefox Accounts and Firefox Home in the settings menu).  The rebranding patches are substantively the same; they just need some fuzzing.
