The diagram has Mail and Browser depending on the Moz/Toolkit entity, and Mozilla Suite depending on the Moz/XPFE entity. If you equate XPFE with XUL, and remember from the article that the Gargantu-Suite will be retired, it is easy to infer that XUL is being deprecated.

Does Moz/Toolkit use XUL? I am thinking you are saying that it does, and Phoenix / Minotaur will rely on XUL.
