What's exactly needed?
- Chromium and Firefox? I don't really know, but I expect them to use
xine/gstreamer/whatever for the multimedia support. So, nothing to do?

I'm afraid that firefox uses the libraries directly, and not a
framework.

Let me be more specific:
Firefox has all the libraries builtin completely (currently vorbis and
theora).
Mozilla (as of now) doesn't support the idea to relay to GStreamer. They
are planning to do that for Firefox Mobile but not desktop Firefox.
That is not exactly a technical decision AFAIK.
When Mozilla thinks WebM is ready to ship I think they will ship it in
whatever release (even a "minor" update, given they are shipping
out-of-process plugins in 3.6.4 which has more (technical) risk).
