Just curious if anyone knows.

I'm not opposed to using Audacious, and I could certainly install xmms via other means. However, I'm really curious as to the reason it was removed.

Because it's not updated anymore upstream.
Including a program with no future support or bugfixes etc in the repos of a LTS-release is not a good idea so it has been removed. Also there are actively maintaned players in the repos, some are even based on xmms like audacious.
