In fact it would not surprise me if they close sourced zfs like they did with Solaris.

They did, but the cat's out of the bag now. Open-source ZFS is now being developed here: http://illumos.org/

If it's open source, we'll fork it and reduce number of devs in any given project!

OmniOS is a distro of Illumos. Illumos is the foundation + kernel, OmniOS is a whole OS distribution (which includes Illumos and a ton of other user-space software). The two cooperate, they don't compete.
