Well, far beyond is probably not correct. The only dependency that is 
kinda `far beyond' is vte, else its Xfce/libexo and D-BUS (which will 
maybe become a dependency for Xfce 4.4 as well).

But Olivier's right, Terminal is not ment to obsolete xfce4-terminal, 
its an alternative for users. Besides that, I'm not in favour of putting 
3rd party stuff into Xfce core; instead we should try to keep the core 
lightweight and clean and a terminal emulator is definetly 3rd party, 
else we'll end up like KDE one day. Just the core desktop apps, like 
window manager, session manager, panel, taskbar, desktop manager and 
some small utilities, thats it.
