The source of a patch does not effect whether it gets reviewed, but if  
a patch is for a specific port you need someone from that port to  
review it.  If the bug/patch contains "Chromium" i assume it's  
platform specific, just as i would for Gtk or Qt.  If you're putting  
that tag on non-platform specific patches that will unnecessarily  
delay the review process.
