I think they'll get picked up before the final series, I think they could have a whole series of them trying to get their lives back if the writers wanted it (and possibly being pursued by the dharma people?) and I can see the people from the boat being the new "others" and them trying to survive from their attacks, possibly even joining forces with the remainder of the current "others".
They would lose too many viewers if they had a season of Lost off the island - and besides, then they'd have to call it 'Found' heh
But you are right about the Dharma thing, we still need to find out about who
they were, the problem is there doesnt seem to be any Dharma people left on the island (except Ben).
Ben also asked one of the Others to take the rest of them to the 'Temple' whilst he attempts to persuade Jack and Co. not to signal the ship. What do you think the temple is?

Remember tho, ben is 'scared' of them - they are either going to kill everyone or save them.. i think that maybe, at the expense of some peoples lives or saving them, a few people escape the island such as jack and kate.. then thats why jack says we have to go back - he feels guilty and he wants to go and save, say hurley sayid etc.
Perhaps the people on the boat are part of the Dharma Initiative and that is why Ben fears them returning and destroying the hostiles (of which Ben is now a part of).
EDIT: But then again ofcourse he may just be tricking them.
Another thing I also thought of is how Ben is very
good at reverse psychology - did you ever think that maybe he wants
them to signal the boat for some reason or another?
