Yeah, that all makes sense, but if you watch the following link, it shows that Kai clearly didn't die:
Tyson and Kai begin to battle here. Not only that, in this video, it shows Kai watching Tyson's finale with Brooklyn:
Aside from that, not that it's exactly canon, but in the manga, it shows Kai's son, Gou (IIRC) in the final chapter.
I know all of that, really, and if you had read the article completely, you would have seen that Dranzer's rebirth powers are brought into the matter and Kai resurrected ... If you watch everything with a Japanese mindset, that is the interpretation the Japanese fans got. We had a link with the Japanese fanbase before, and they shared this point of view with us. Actually, I think you might have been there around that time, on Beyblade Damashii ...
So yes, obviously at the end, he is not dead, but "did he die" ? It is entirely subject to interpretations. The English dub was just so different to the original version anyway, I should actually study what they say in the latter ...
