Very minor nit: VMware does the bridging in the background for ESX (vSwitches are bridges).  ESX >4.0 can have a Cisco virtual Nexus 1000 instead of the default bridging.... which is cool.  But it's still bridging, just something that the VI client helps you with.

Likewise, the default VMware Server/Workstation/Player setup is with bridged networking; VMware Fusion on Mac OS X likewise.  But, as you noted, you currently seem to have to do this manually with KVM/QEMU.
