Well, yes, but let me caveat that I consider "body skills" like ki, kokyu, etc., to be differentiable from "tactics and strategy skills" like ma-ai, timing, etc.
Ah yes, my bad... *makes mental note to remember to distinguish body-specific skills from strategy and tactical skills*

IMO, we're talking about 2 different things because the use of power is quite different from that used in Aikido
How is it different?

No, I don't consider karate to go to this level of sophistication....
Oh, without a doubt...but I used "karate" very loosely here. Perhaps if I used the terms "toudi" or "tode" more specifically, it may mean something . Although, I haven't seen/experienced enough of "di" too deeply, to be able to comment knowledgeably either way, as to the level of sophistication of ki/kokyu development.
