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.

I was going to mention this, too.  The announcement reads very much like
Mozilla's announcement that it was dropping Thunderbird development.
Thunderbird is still very much alive, just Mozilla isn't paying
developers to work on it anymore.
