OS X Lion has heavily focused on gestures, so to take full advantage of those gestures a trackpad is necessary, which is why Apple could be wanting to phase out the Magic Mouse.

That would be plain stupid - but would not be surpriced since they now pushing for "natural" - invert scroll in LION. WHY WHY you want to change good conventions? Plus that mouse is 56x quicker and efficent to use in proper work - not just touching around your iPhoto-home-album. Great ideat to take OSX towards handicapped iOS Mobile OSss...zzzzz. Would recon vise versa.
