Ah, finally I see what you want.
All you actually want is an GInterface

so we can do
mediaplayer = gst_player_new ("file.mpg");
gtk_media_player_play (GTK_MEDIA_PLAYER (mediaplayer);

mediaplayer = helix_player_new ("file.mpg");
gtk_media_player_play (GTK_MEDIA_PLAYER (mediaplayer);

not entirely sure that would be overly useful, cos at some point
there's going to be a need to treat each implementation as its own
specific implementation, which the abstraction of a GtkMediaInterface
wouldn't be able to do.

But it wouldn't be a fundamental widget or anything like that.
It would be a GInterface like GtkEditable is.
If this was to exist (which IMO it isn't needed) it would be better in
somewhere like GnomeMedia rather than GTK+
