I am looking to use ICI 8.6 to federate between OnDemand versions 8.3 and 8.4 and Content Manager 8.2 and 8.4. Looking at the documentation, version 8.6 of ICI has dropped support for ODWEK 7.1. Is there a work-around for this (apart from using ICI v8.5)? Also, is there a CM 8.2 connector available or would we have to write one?

The ODWEK versions listed in the documentation (http://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=86&uid=swg27016931#conn) are generally what we test with. You can use a any ODWEK version with a given OD server as long as it is compatible / supported by OD/ODWEK. Please refer to OD/ODWEK documentation to determine what version of ODWEK is supported with a given version of OD.
Regarding CM 8.2, although ICI 8.6 does not officially support CM 8.2 (since CM 8.2 is no longer in service), the connector might still work with CM 8.2. So, you can continue to us it at your own risk - That means, if you run into any issues, you will need to reproduce the issue against one of the supported versions to receive support.
If the ICI 8.6 CM connector does not work, you can extend the connector and overwrite the required methods to get it to work.
Hope that helps !
