Sounds like a well thought out plan.

I'm currently shooting on an Olympus E-520. Beyond the kit lenses, I have two 4/3 lenses--the Olympus 11-22 f/2.8-3.5 and Sigma 18-50 f/2.8, the former of which I purchased in full knowledge that my next camera would probably be a micro 4/3 camera, and both of which I've tested to my satisfaction on other micro 4/3 bodies. I shoot landscape, and I shoot studio portraiture. I've pushed--and exceeded--the limitations of my camera, and gotten decent results all the same.

Without exaggeration, any camera on the market, up to and including the most expensive digital medium format system, is easily within my skill potential. Money is an object, which is part of why I'm staying within the system I've already invested in.

I'd like to think I've thought everything through. I'm already making a few compromises--sacrificing wireless TTL and image stabilization for a built-in EVF and modern image quality. I suppose I won't concern myself too much about the G3. Instead I may look into getting a supplementary body somewhere down the line. Whether that's a GH3, another GH2, a G3, or E-PL2 or whatever is on the market when I do buy another body will of course be determined by what my future needs are.
