It's more of a Fuji USA call.
After exchanging numerous emails with Japan and USA Fujifilm groups over the last three years with regard to their sheet films, especially 4x5 Velvia 50, the input from each group was never the same on any given day. So, I'm sure the biggest knot in the cord is with the USA group if the product is still being made. But who knows with the business world and how it thinks anymore.
