I would deem it highly unlikely that the Carbon API will be deprecated
any time soon:

It is already deprecated. This was made especially clear at this year's WWDC where it was announced that 64-bit Carbon applications will not be supported.

Cocoa is basically just an Objective-C  wrapper around

Actually, most Cocoa UI is independent of Carbon.

it would probably
be a strategic mistake for Apple to kick the backend of widely used
toolkits like Qt+ and the upcoming native Gtk+ port out of MacOS X

Trolltech has already announced that "Over time, we will gradually transition Qt to also use Cocoa for 64-bit applications".

A lot of good information about the future of Carbon can be found on this wiki:
