And if control were to be ceded to an independent foundation (which is already an enormous assumption), Google could still at any point get frustrated that their PRs and merge requests aren't being accepted and fork Chrome back off again.

Yep

And I don't know what to do about that.

There would be nothing to do about that, except change browser but at that point there would be fewer options and we would be back at square one essentially ahhaa.

BTW another aspect is that even if tomorrow all browser would choose a single engine we'd have to support the existing ones for years :(
