If google really believes that supporting Theora is minimal threat, why don't they Use it on YOUTUBE? why did they invested in buying a new Codecs? Google is like a whore if you pay them (with supporting Theora, they get the OSS- Supporters heart), they gonna do what ever you want! They do any thing to get more users and Ads market.
Only the future will tell, I don't believe that Mozilla will keep their Position, Google is taking their Market-space. Buy supporting both Codecs they are getting Firefox-users, but they will not use Theora in any Productive Space.

my two cents
