In experimental builds, yes.

I assume the latest move by Mozilla (which I think is great, obviously) 
won't do anything to address the IP concerns of mentioned players.

Safari can play back Ogg content with XiphQT installed thanks to being 
based on QuickTime. A simple "click to install 3rd-party components" 
would basically ensure a reasonably reliable cross-browser media 
compatibility, but it would of course be Apple's decision to implement 
something like this.
