What does the equivalent diagram look like for other aircraft? Do you have to hold the stick back to maintain a nose high attitude or will neutral stick do it?
For conventional non-FBW aircraft and Boeing FBW, it looks like the well known phugoid where the nose drops as you slow from trim speed. (But let me preface this with the statement that my Boeing FBW understanding is theoretical.)
