4/3 glass already has an image circle optimized for the sensor, so
bringing the lens closer might cause some edge problems.

The idea isn't to bring a 4/3's ZD lens closer. The idea is to design a new ZD/EVIL lens that would be closer. You'd use and extension tube of some kind to also so that you could mount regular 4/3's lenses if you wanted to.

There is a
bit of leeway for sensor shift IS, but not much.

Actually, with the lenses I've looked at there is a ton of leeway. The ZD50, for instance has a nearly 40mm image circle.

Here's my little survey. The box is 40mm to a side.
