Both packages (firefox and xulrunner) provides gecko-libs and currently can't be installed together.

AFAIK, the gecko-lib provides should not be a problem. The only problem
I am aware of is that both firefox and xulrunner packages
have /etc/gre.d/gre(64).conf files.

Can't firefox be cut down so that it doesn't include it's own gecko-libs
but instead uses xulrunner so that it's just like any other gecko app
(Disclaimer: I'm not really familiar with xulrunner so don't shoot me)?

That's the plan.

If I understood the discussion regarding xulrunner correctly the whole reason the Mozilla people aren't shipping a xulrunner based version of Firefox is because they don't want to be limited by a runtime that needs to be stable rather than cutting edge. If Fedora plans to ship a xulrunner based Firefox anyway wouldn't that basically require a fork of the code?
