Airlineroute made a route rundown for KUL-TPE-OKA. Seems like D7 is pretty much targeting TPE-OKA traffic only (as I suspected). O&D traffic demand for 2018 was slightly less than 4,000 pax (which if I understand correctly, that's 10-11 PDEW for 2018).

Yes, I think they only start fifth freedom flights for a couple of reasons. Firstly, if there is sufficient demand for that sector and secondly, to increase aircraft utilisation. It is interesting to note that D7 did not wait for Airasia Japan to launch their flights to OKA first.

That's a lot of extra capacity on the route and surprised that they finally went ahead with D7. 

Wonder how long it will last?

just found this:https://www.expatgo.com/my/2019/11/05/air-asia-doubles-flights-from-kuala-lumpur-to-singapore/?fbclid=IwAR2AktTEMoz_4uV1Ah4DAP1uKvFzN42Q7BG3T-ZIbYw3f-hiXbElybPpWic

Starting on 10 November 2019, Air Asia has recently announced that they are increasing their services and seat capacity from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore with an additional daily flight on their wide-body Airbus A330 aircrafts. 

AirAsia’s regional commercial head, Amanda Woo said, “We are very excited about the commencement of flight services using our fleet of wide-body aircraft Airbus A330 in response to the increased demand for Kuala Lumpur bound flights, all thanks to the constant support of our passengers. Ahead of the Visit Malaysia Year in 2020, we hope to be able to contribute and help to promote Malaysia tourism with our value fares. Guests can also look forward to trying out our award-winning premium flatbed and other perks at attractive prices.”

if i’m not mistaken, it will start as early as Jan 2020 with A321, crew from KUL with nightstop at BKI. I might be wrong.
