For the record, I'd like to move *all* of the compositor <-> media engine interactions to the chromium side.  My ideal world would have something like:

namespace WebKit {

class WebMediaPlayer {
   WebLayer* createCompositingLayer() = 0;

and the implementation in chromium would construct a cc::VideoLayer, wrap it in a WebLayer, and return that back to WebKit so WebCore can insert it into the compositing tree in the correct place.  Then, from that point on, all interactions would be between cc::VideoLayer and the media:: pipeline stuff, using media::VideoFrame as the video frame data structure.  This would mean no WebVideoLayer, no WebVideoFrame, no WebVideoFrameProvider, no adapters for any of these, etc.  I just haven't had time to sit down and think through this fully (especially the startup/shutdown synchronization).

So yes, adding this new functionality on the chromium side will definitely be more future proof.
