Might as well make this an "what happened to x book".

    These books were announced like years ago. Have we ever been given an answer?

To try my best. I can cite anything I wrote as a fact, I just didn't want to copy and paste and link. If you need anything specific, just let me know.

Killraven, still coming. Some of the issues are drawn, all are written, Marvel is just waiting for them to be completed before soliciting. With the series having a lower sales ceiling due to the creators and character, delays would really kill the book.

Dakota North, is pretty much canceled. Initial delays were due to the fact that the story didn't fit into the current Marvel status quo, but we haven't heard anything in a while. Cebulski, the writer, hopes to revisit the story/character later on. It was originally announced years ago before her appearances in Daredevil, and seems to have conflicted with that portrayal. I think in the story she was still going to be a model.

Models Inc is a unknown. We've seem to have gotten Marvel Divas instead. One guess was that Marvel was going to release it in the fall during the Fall Fashion week to tie into that, since the story is based on fashion/supermodels. Another guess was that Marvel got the order numbers for the first issue, decided they were too low, and canceled the series. We haven't heard anything about it though, despite the fact that I think the first two issues were solicited. If some of the art was done, say for at least the first issue, I have trouble thinking that Marvel would just cancel the series and not reuse the art. Also it's possible that Marvel is waiting until something to happen to Mary Jane in ASM. Nothing has been said either way.

Marvel Knights Cage, assuming you mean the one by Genndy Tartakovsky, is most likely canceled. The guy is pretty busy, working on his own movies, working on a new tv show, etc. He is even working on Iron Man II. So he isn't going to have time in the immediate future to work on it.

    The only thing I heard was a rumor of why the Cloak and Dagger mini is postponed.

Well the prominent rumor was that with the character appearing in Dark X-Men, it would postpone their miniseries until 2010. That sounds likely.
