Ethereum and OmiseGO

My apologies if this is considered somewhat off topic, but I wanted to gauge the community sentiment here about the OMG project. I don't see it discussed here very much.

With OMG's role in developing and implementing (at least the first iteration of) Plasma, and the amount of Ethereum advisors in OMG, the projects seem significantly linked.

So what do you think about it? Does it play a long term role in the scaling of Ethereum? Will it assume a large part of the simple value payments use case from the Ethereum blockchain? Do you consider OMG "part of" Ethereum?

I am curious to see how OMG is viewed from the perspective of the Ethereum community.
