You know this is one of the few episodes of DSN, I've only seen 2 or 3 times. Not one of my favourite episodes.
Yeah, it was a fairly transparent attempt to have Kai Opaka fall on her sword nobly so pave the way for Winn's rise to power.
Actually, at the time they hadn't thought of that and were planning on Bariel becoming the next Kai until they realised how boring it would be if everyone was buddy buddy.

On one hand it's a pity, because I liked the Opaka character, on the other Winn was such a delightfully wicked antagonist. Though it was nice Opaka showed up regularly in flashback.
I don't remember her popping up more than once, maybe twice after they killed her.
