I wouldn't discount the added overhead of nspluginwrapper on plugins.
I have no measured data, but I'm always suspicious of anything that
is going to require reading and writing lots of data and context
switching between separate processes when it could just be running
directly in firefox. Of course that should only affect plugins,
nspluginwrapper is itself a plugin :-).
