Kinect isn't dead yet. But unless Microsoft brings out something that makes it a Must Buy item (And clearly for many people that is not voice command and hand gestures) then it surely won't be too long before its time to break out the shovel and start digging that grave.
No. There are still games coming for it. I just think MS wants to try and please everyone, so they took it out for those that are so violently against it. It will still have games and be implemented in others because "gasp" some of us do like it and MS knows that too.

Apart from games like the Disney Dancing one and probably another Kinect Sports down the line I can't see any other games using the Kinect now that it has became an optional device rather then a mandatory one.
