Iíd cut it off as well. My guess would be some type of bacterial infection. Iíd apply some cinnamon to the cut to seal it up after removing the leaf.

If the keikis have roots, they can easily survive but not in potting soil. You want a pot that just fits the roots (if the pot is too big it will tend to stay moist too long). Orchids breath through...

I agree it looks like some type of peloric mutation. Iíve seen pictures of other white Phalaenopsis with similar flowers. It should bloom out like this consistently. Neat save!

I second the spider mite concern.

Also: did you repot the mother plant as well as the keiki? These sometimes dull and drop leaves after repotting especially if the roots were damaged.
