Yes, they've been recommending to use HEAD lately, and keep promising a 
release Real Soon Now.

It's not a surprise. Solaris' USB support has always been a few years 
behind and generally poor, unreliable and slow. There are some other 
parts where it shines. But not that one.

I was not exactly talking about the ability to load/unload the module, 
but merely to be able to have the same zfs version with kernels ranging 
from 2.6 to 3.11.

The easy root install issue, sadly, is more a political one than 
technical at this point.
