I'm not at all sure that Jason's right. On the other hand, as far as I can tell, no one is clear on the future of the suite. I do know that, once FB and TB reach 1.0, they are to be marketed as the primary end-user products that Mozilla.org produces. I'm not sure it's quite clear whether they will be packaged together as a suite of applications or just avaliable as seperate entities, like at present. I don't know (and nor, so far as I can tell, does anyone else) eaxctly what will happen to Seamonkey - certianly the version number will live on as the version number of the core code. It's entirely possible that dropping the suite will be 'forgotten' and it will continue to be avaliable as a front end.

To answer the original question of why not the *birds - the suite is avaliable and stable now. Most people distributing Mozilla are distributing the suite. If Mozilla is being installed in any organisations, it's probably the suite that's being installed. The suite is the only end user download from Mozilla.org not labelled 'technology preview'. All these factors conspire to make the suite emphasis the most relevant now.
