Re: Kakashi's death?
I don't think Kakashi is dead just yet. He certainly may die in the next chapter or two, but at the current moment, he appears to just be unconscious and waiting for a coup de grace by anyone who happens to walk by. He doesn't seem to have had too much damage yet, just exhausted and helpless.
So he needs either someone's help, or some mystic boon of strength to flee in order to not just be killed.
