Isn't Chrome's implementation of Flash their own? IIRC it is. I'm not sure what restrictions Adobe has placed on open/closed source in the open standard, but I would imagine the MPEG-LA most certainly will not allow you to create an open source implementation. That's a pretty big distinction if you ask me.
