Then you can use portupgrade -o www/mozilla-devel-gtk2 mozilla-gtk2\*
when the time comes.

The problem is that you can't have 2 ports with the same versions. It'll
break INDEX builds.

However, if you're just doing this locally, you can copy
www/mozilla to www/mozilla-devel and change everything around to:
(a) install into the proper locations
(b) name itself correctly (MOZ_SUFX and PKGNAMESUFX}

You're welcome to try that if you'd like, or play with @origin in
