Forum .LRN Q&A: Re: What is OKI, and what should dotLRN's relationship with it be?
In the interim, one way to think about Sakai is as a collection Java frameworks for developing uPortal-compatible learning tools with some reference implementations along for the ride. (See http://weblogs.java.net/blog/simstu/archive/2004/09/sakai_open_sour.html for a developer's perspective on this point.) To the extent that the project continues to use OKI, then OKI will survive, whether or not MIT continues to support it. (In some ways, MIT is the last institution I would use to gauge adoption of anything--even stuf they have created themselves.) As the framework that is Sakai matures, we'll see what happens to OKI.
