Illumos advanced to zpool version 5000 and this is available in the latest OpenIndiana development release. Does that make you happy?

As far as which Solaris derivate has the best future, it is clear that Illumos has a lot of development energy right now and there is little reason to believe that this energy will cease. Illumos-derived distributions may come and go but it looks like Illumos has a future, particularly once it frees itself from all Sun-derived binary components.

Oracle continues with Solaris 11 and does seem to be funding necessary driver and platform support. User access to Solaris 11 may be abitrarily limited.
