If I understood correctly there were plans that cygipc will be absorbed

Not exactly. The cygdaemon will eventually gain the ability to handle
IPC, at which point cygipc will become obsolete. But, cygdaemon shares
no code with cygipc -- so "absorbing cygipc into cygwin" is the wrong
cygdaemon will eventually obsolete cygipc. (Thus, "what is the future of
CYGIPC?" It has no future. "What is the future of IPC on cygwin?"
cygdaemon IS the future)
and I have seen attempts for that.
What is the final decision on this matter ?
I will try to insure that cygipc is usable until cygdaemon is completely
ready to "take over" as the official IPC component of cygwin. I will
continue to "maintain" it for a while thereafter, to allow an orderly
transition to the new cygdaemon. Then it will become an historical relic.
