I don't disagree that Bugzilla may quite reasonably move to a YUI alternative, but it's not quite accurate to describe YUI as deprecated. All that's been said is that Yahoo employees won't be spending their time doing new YUI 3 development. There's a developer community apart from Yahoo employees, and it is ultimately they who will determine the relevance of YUI going forward.
