"When one thing is practiced & pursued, ignorance is abandoned, clear knowing arises, the conceit 'I am' is abandoned, latent tendencies are uprooted, fetters are abandoned. Which one thing? Mindfulness immersed in the body." -AN 1.230

I thought that nibbana has no identification with what's dying. I.e., from an interpersonal perspective, the arahant is dying, but the internal perspective doesn't see it that way. </speculation>
