More importantly, can they do anything to make it interesting?

None of the current systems are very interesting, as evidenced by their low sales numbers (all systems combined sell around half as much as just Canon's dSLRs). The Nikons have an interesting feature - on-sensor phase-detection autofocus, but even that doesn't seem to have attracted much of a following. So what can Canon do to such a system to make it interesting to either compact-camera buyers (largely people looking for an under $350 camera to put in a pocket or purse) or dSLR buyers (people looking for much better performance than you can get from a compact)? I've got nothing.
