Sure, the gnome apps use esd...but there's more than gnome.  I don't
know of any pseudo /dev/dsp device.  Can you give me pointers?  It's
not in the standard Debian version AFAICT.

gnome-moz-remote shouldn't be used by modern applications.  The
applications should be using the GNOME URL handlers, which you should
configure for the web-browser of your choice.  Non-GNOME applications
should make use of the BROWSER environment variable... if not, you
should e-mail the application authors and tell them their app is broken;
it doesn't follow the "standard way of doing things."

Hoever, gnome-moz-remote doesn't have a way of running a browser on a
different machine if you are coming in via ssh -X.
True. But if you start netscape/mozilla on your local machine first, gnome-moz-remote will tell that instance to display new URLs (provided they aren't file:// urls, in which case it will only allow a local mozilla/netscape to display them).
