In short, no. The "resources" (at least in terms of development) that Camino uses are not the Mozilla Foundation's. Mike Pinkerton and various other volunteers do the work, because they want to. So if Mozilla Foundation dumped Camino, there wouldn't be any more work getting done on Firebird.

Whether it would be better to ignore Camino from a marketing point of view and focus on Firebird is something that could be argued, just in order to reduce confusion between products. But I don't think the benefits of that make it worth doing.
