The Document Foundation is - in general - a good umbrella, because it's 
specifically designed to prevent any single company from ruling over the 
projects. It's designed to be ruled by independent developers. If you 
look around, you see how important that is.

That said, I don't think Thunderbird fits there at all. LibreOffice is a 
completely different beast technically and would never make "the 
like-Outlook component of the LibreOffice suite". Thunderbird is a 
Mozilla product and only feels well among the birds.
