    I personally believe when the time was right - Bail, Yoda and Obi-Wan were gonna reunite and bring Luke and Leia to train as Jedi to fight Vader and the Emperor with Yoda's and Obi-Wan's help, so there would be 4 Jedi against the Sith while Bail led the political opposition and the fight with Mon Mothma against the Imperial leadership.

    Yoda and Obi-Wan would then use Luke and Leia to rebuild the Jedi Order and the 4 would start a new Jedi Council while Luke and Leia did the recruiting and most of the training under their tutelage.

    What do you guys think?

    From the extended screenplay of ROJ:

    YODA
    Luke...Luke...Do not...Do not underestimate the powers of the Emperor,
    or suffer your father's fate, you will. Luke, when gone am I
    (cough),
    the last of the Jedi will you be. Luke, the Force runs strong in your
    family. Pass on what you have learned, Luke...
    (with great effort)
    There is...another...Sky...Sky...walker.


    BEN
    Your insight serves you well. Bury your feelings deep down, Luke. They
    do you credit.
    But they could be made to serve the Emperor.

    Luke looks into the distance, trying to comprehend all this.

    BEN (continuing his narrative)
    When your father left, he didn't know your mother was pregnant. Your
    mother and I knew he would find out eventually, but we wanted to keep
    you both as safe as possible, for as long as possible. So I took you
    to live with my brother Owen on Tatooine... and your mother took Leia
    to live as the daughter of Senator Organa, on Alderaan.

    Luke turns, and settles near Ben to hear the tale.

    BEN (attempting to give solace with his words)
    The Organa household was high-born and politically quite powerful in
    that system. Leia became a princess by virtue of lineage... no one knew
    she'd been adopted, of course. But it was a title without real power,
    since Alderaan had long been a democracy. Even so, the family
    continued to be politically powerful, and Leia, following in her foster
    father's path, became a senator as well. That's not all she became, of
    course... she became the leader of her cell in the Alliance against the
    corrupt Empire. And because she had diplomatic immunity, she was a
    vital link for getting information to the Rebel cause. That's what she
    was doing when her path crossed yours... for her foster parents had
    always told her to contact me on Tatooine, if her troubles became
    desperate.

    Luke is overwhelmed by the truth, and is suddenly protective of his
    sister.

    LUKE
    But you can't let her get involved now, Ben. Vader will destroy her.

    BEN
    She hasn't been trained in the ways of the Jedi the way you have,
    Luke... but the Force is strong with her, as it is with all of your
    family. There is no avoiding the battle. You must face and destroy
    Vader!

    I think all the original extra information - despite the passages that had been made obsolete by the PT - suggests that Luke was trained with the purpose to overcome Vader and then pass his knowledge on to Leia.

    Well now, with the "Certain Point of View" short stories out, specifically the one 'bout Yoda an' which Skywalker he was thinkin' was to be trained... well this just throwed a wrench in'ta it, din't it.
    So, if all three Obi-Wan, Bail an' Yoda were involved then, clearly, at least two of them three wasn't on the same page.
    Or if not, none of them was.
