Oracle VM runs Xen 3.4.0 as already stated. I figured a new release
will follow shortly to bring in things like tmem compression, default
use directed balloning (dom0 manages ram sharing / paging out idle
VMs), bkltap2 and such.
It is very close to normal Xen on the first look, but has quite a few
modifications for performance / stability
(yes, really, not just in the whitepapers)

I find that unlikely so far.
I could imagine Oracle VM to be sucked into / dropped for Sun xVM Ops.
Oracle VM has a very neat Xen setup and a not exciting GUI, so it
would be a sensible move.
