Is it really settling? My impression is the only differences is the the ice* have had the mozilla proprietary stuff removed.

Iceweasel is just Debian's version of Firefox with a bit of branding changed and perhaps a misc patch or two -- which, in fact, I believe IS the reason they rename it Iceweasel: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Firefox . I think the same principle applies to the other ice* packages.

"Settle"? It's the original version of the same program. Did Debian have a patch for seamonkey that was so useful that seamonkey is less without it?

Well, there's nothing stopping an interested person from creating a pkgbuild for iceweasel - take the orig and diff files, apply the diff, then apply the patches in debian/patches/ - see example 1 and example 2.

That's a great reason!  And a great thing about Arch is it gives you the tools to use the software you want, even if Arch doesn't supply it.  It's your computer.  Go for it!
