Reading about how OKL4 is used reminded me about another thing - apparently there was already a "main-stream computing" example of ~microkernel OS, in the form of (2nd revision) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_OS_nanokernel ? ;)
Still, rather hidden of course...

Later Symbian versions were also similar, IIRC.
