^ Kakashi was trying to protect Chouji from the missile so Chouji could escape and give Tsunade vital info on Pain's abilities. He succeeded in that. He said "If I use Mangekyou Sharingan now, I'll die," and then used it. So I don't see how he'll survive, unless his judgement was somehow incorrect.

So it would be totally lame to kill off the GREAT COPY NINJA.
What are you talking about? Kakashi is good to go. He's taught his students everything he can, and there'll be other people to repel Pain. If he were to die, now would be a good time. Now don't get me wrong, I like Kakashi, but dying a hero's death would increase his awesomeness tenfold.
