Is the Travel Zoom HX9v, HX20/30v dead?

Is the premium travel zoom category now dead to Sony?
The past few years, Sony has announced the superzoom and travel zoom cameras on the same day.
Today, Sony announced the superzoom HX300 and..a more compact WX300... No HX compact.
The WX now has a 20x zoom, but its a bit slower (f/3.5 instead of f/3.2). But the WX still only has the 18mp sensor (from last years HX20?). Improved stabilization may make the slower lens a wash overall.
