I can't speak for the Developers That Matter (TM), but I don't think
there is any plan to remove wineoss, winejack and winealsa from the
tree completely. I think it's more likely that wineopenal will be
available (probably as default in the long term) as an alternative.

I certainly haven't heard of any plans to include an emulator in Wine.

Work has already begun, but Wine as a project generally does not set
target dates for any feature support.
