> * Chrome was supposed to drop H264 support a >1 year ago in favor of WebM. It never happened.

This is pivotal. A big part of why WebM looked like it could win was Chrome's announced support for it and the dropping of H.264. It looks like Chrome has backtracked on that - over a year passed, no follow through on Chrome's promise to remove H.264 - so it is forcing Mozilla to reconsider it's position.

Does anyone know more about Chrome's current stance?
