Should Canon get Sony Sensors for their top Models to be competetive?

Extensive analysis, number crunching and dozens samples have now clearly shown that Canon is still lagging at least i-2 generations behind Sony/Nikon in sensor development. Should canon opt for Sony sensors for at least their top models so that they remain competitive? Besides, Canon users can also have an opportunity to couple Canon glass with the state of the art sensor technology. If enough pressure is put, will Canon be forced to do it?
