This is not summary in fact but auto response message.
Just nobody answered - possibly nobody is interested in zfs on the list :-/
The answer for my question is the following (after few hours of digging
in different SUN docs):

zfs is not released yet officially. So it is not present
in Solaris 10 1/06 release/update. The date of official
release of zfs under solaris 10 is not known yet (SUN's people:
please correct me if I am wrong).

zfs IS available in a beta version of Solaris which has 
at least 3 different names: i.e. Solaris 11, Solaris Nevada or
Solaris Express (I did not have time to learn about differences),
at least in current version of it (as of  Feb 2006) - version b31a.
Anyway one has to follow Solaris Express links in order to
download CDs with this version (files named sol-nv-b31a-sparc*.zip).

Searching for zfs on SUN's web sites is messed: mostly you get
outdated documentation of what is going to be done in a future
(as of e.g. 2004) and it also shows that the project is delayed
for at least 1 year ...

Kind regards,
