Luxu and the foretellers definitely don't know about the ark. MoM kept it secret, because he doesn't want them to to make the obvious connection between it and his disappearance. This is one of the main reasons why I think the Darkness is actually MoM himself: the Darkness knows too much to be anyone else.
I don't think it's him, there's no reason for him to present himself like that when Maleficent never saw him before, and that's Maleficent before KH2: up to that point, she had never met any members of the Organization so it's not like she would associate that cloak with anyone either.
Spoiler ShowI think the scene from Re:Mind between the MoM and Young Xehanort may be relevant here: he talks about the younger one one day being strong enough to ditch that Cloak, while he himself can't really do that.
Maybe he extracted the Darkness from his own Heart for unknow reasons and that's what the being is. He wears the Cloak as protection so it wouldn't find him again, or so it can't easily possess him, I'm not sure. Xehanort had to learn about the method of putting a Heart of Pure Light against one of Pure Darkness to forge the Chi-Blade from somewhere, since that's not how it went out in the first Keyblade War, unless there's a second war between UX and his era?
I would not be surprised if someone with the same power to serve as a heart-hotel like Sora existed before and the MoM is linked to that person somehow, which is why he hides his face. Maybe even Ventus, making a huge parallel between their situations. lol
