Linkerd doesn't have to run as a host-level proxy, though I don't know how many people deploy it as a sidecar in practice. Host-level proxies also can make sense in some scenarios.

Most that we're aware of run Linkerd per host. There are a couple companies that use it as a sidecar, and don't Linkerd's resource requirements heavyweight relative to the existing footprint of their services.
 
I don't know how much of an issue it is for linkerd users, but, irrespective of features and resource profiles, I could imagine a language preference, for dev and ops teams familiar with Java/Scala, particularly if they are writing plugins.

Absolutely. The JVM platform and the plugin model are huge deal for some very large companies. I'm happy to provide examples off list.
