Yahoo Site Explorer Shutting Down. Or Just The API?

For months there has been a lot of talk about Yahoo Site Explorer being phased out or shut down.

But all the information I can find only points to the API for YSE being shut down but not the actual YSE site.

Then on Yahoo's site they even seem to reference that the web interface for exploring URL's will remain intact:

When I am “exploring” a site or a URL, are these results coming from Yahoo! systems or Bing systems?

We know how much the webmaster community loves the various “explore” features supported by Site Explorer. We are working closely with the Bing team to help ensure that these explore features can be supported when results are powered by the Bing content system, and when available, will be integrating directly into Site Explorer. While the integration is not immediately available today

And this...

What are the changes to the Site Explorer User interface?

The Site Explorer experience remains unchanged. In the future, If you are an authenticated site owner, you will additionally see if your feed submissions and other actions have been sent to Bing or not.

It sounds like they plan to keep the site going (at least for now) and I can't find information about YSE not being updated anymore so what's the deal?
