I could see Panny splitting the line so that GH is video, the G5 moves up to serious photographer level, the GX is the rangefinder version of the G, and the GF-variants are the consumer models. The market seems to have these segments, so the offerings ought to match.

2012 is turning out to be the year of M43.

Splitting G and GH does not make any sense already. Too many product lines hurt profitability. They either should merge the lines, or move one of them (probably GH) strongly upmarket with magnesium weather-sealed bodies, high framerates, large batteries, premium weather-sealed zooms as kit etc. Video itself is not a differentiator anymore, everybody does that, even cheap P&S, and it matters less every day.
