Not really - some of the extensions will remain in PHP.  I believe that the 
fact that PHP comes bundled with support for some of the most common Web 
environment applications is still a serious factor in its success.  It did 
get into a situation when there are simply too many not-too-mainstream 
extensions in there, though, which makes it very difficult to find a stable 
point at time to release it.  I wouldn't expect MySQL, Oracle or XML 
support to be removed from PHP, though.
