Camino is a kind of "unpopular stepchild". It's never going to be as popular, because it's only on one platform, and there just aren't that many users on Mac OS X, compared to Windows and even compared to Linux. The foundation is paying for people to work on Firefox and Thunderbird, and those are the products that they are pushing. Camino isn't really part of the strategy. That's not to say anything against Camino, which although slowly, seems to be moving along, but it's a side project, not the main focus.
